What We've Been Taught

By Kidlet, Morris, OK

Revenge is sweet,
Or so they say,
And this is true,
Until it rots,
Turns sour on your tongue,
Leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

Terrorism is a disease,
And war is the cure.

But violence is violence,
No matter how you spin it.
I'm not saying don't defend your country.
Not at all,
But violence begets violence begets violence.
It's like knocking over a line of dominoes.
What I'm saying is,
Why tip the the first domino?
Why take an eye for an eye?
Why fight fire with fire?
All it does is blind you to the inferno you've created,
Slowly burning up your world.
