THE NEW FOE OF THE LASTING WAR

Then let us hate; become our callous foe,
We have the choice; tis that or love
We’re free to choose either one you know.
Either one; the raven or the dove
Lets teach our children how to hate,
It’s easy just being what we are
They’ll copy every example we relate
The new foe of the lasting war
Hating is the easy road to take
Reviving blame with backward looking thoughts
Over and over making the same mistake
Sowing the seeds against which we fought
Hate! What is hate but one’s own invention
In order to perpetuate attention?
