Rise Up Ye Armies Of Peace And Love



Rise up ye armies of peace and love Make known you're tactical plan To rid the world of this evil scourge Of wars and the killing of man It's not too late but it soon will be Beyond our efforts to change This world is still a beautiful place To neglect it would be a shame Not to acknowledge it's just a loan This beautiful world of ours The mountains high, the rolling seas The sweet smelling scent of flowers No more abuse let's all make amends And treat this planet with dignity Respect for providing this absolute beauty How tragic to miss this opportunity Let's put an end to this constant upheaval Start out as such innocent tykes Bewildering how we've gone so far astray And traveled this path so warlike Rise up ye armies of peace and love Put an end to this strife and selfishness We owe our life to this place of beauty Let's forget about all this foolishness! © Jack Ellison 2013

    What a great message! As the saying goes "Leave the world better than when you left it". I'm afraid not enough people stop to admire the natural beauty that we all live in. We are too caught up in our fast-paced-technology-overridden lives to appreciate such things. I'm no tree-hugger myself, but I do think nature should be respected more than it is. I apologize for the long comment, but your poetry got my mind racing. Once again another well written piece!

    BRAVO! Loved how it flowed... As a denizen of the Moon, I can see how you are so attached... Our scenic vistas, dark skies, dusty lands... with beautiful vistas of earth rise and set... Darn those meteors! OUCH! If you don't take care of it, then it'll look like our moon. XOXO
