Paris.

Water_witch-2by Abigael18 Nov 2015

Is the city of romance
Parisians make love not war
and Europe will have justice,
it will defend our liberty.

we must draw to an end
this oil inflamed war,
vendors and buyers maimed
and killed. War is murder

most foul; makes a mockery
of religion— in war they lose
all of the values at their core.
Are we oil addicts, hooked

on this drug of destruction?
Can we resist indoctrination
by military and religious dogma
that says killing is just?

Look around our torn world
the suffering makes it obvious
we don't need more arguments
on behalf of God or oil moguls

we need more humanity,
people who live by their values
of liberty, compassion and love—
and refuse succumb to fear.
