War Games or Peace?

from ebay
from ebay

Little tin soldiers never hurt anybody,

but they did teach us warfare,

some men love football, tanks, and jet fighters.

They taught us well.

I believe in bravery,

and honor,

protecting people,

freedom from tyrants,

but every day we kill people,

in our video games.

Healthy aggression?

I’d rather see us inhaling more of nature,

experiencing the mountains,

rivers and the oceans,

absorbing the creation,

soaking in the sunshine,

breathing in the peace,

and freedom.
