To those world leaders
You know who you are
Do you ever stop and consider-
The consequences of your actions?
Or is this power trip you are on
Way above that?
Why not bring those egos into a room
Sit down, place your cards on the table
Think about where your present actions
It is never too late to offer the hand of peace
A lot more will be thought of you
Innocent lives will be saved
The peoples of the world will
It is hoped
Learn from actions of peace
To follow in your path.
Economies will be allowed flourish
Blood will not be spilled, oil will flow.
Draw up your hopes for a safer world.
The Pen is Mightier than the Sword.
The stone the builders rejected
Has become the corner stone.
Concentrate rather on what is said than what is seen.
Let your words not fall on stony ground.
