Seeking Peace

Lobbed across the wall
words explode at their feet
self-righteous munitions
so easily kept in supply
High horses charge the fence
of a circumstantial border
as arguments are fired
at friends and strangers alike
What hope for an accord?
Could treaties ever come?
Even a war of perspective
takes a toll on the community
Begin by dismounting
then dismantle
Pound the sword of pious words
into plowshares of hope

Seeking Peace
