Painted Signs

They shoot at us with rubber bullets
cause they don't like the words painted on our signs,
"Stop Detonating Love Bombs
In the Middle East!".
But I suppose that will be all that's left
when everyone dies for this
enigmatic War for Peace.

    Make sure you where a cup or you may be unable to make love. Joking aside I like the message.

    ... well THAT would be a high price to pay, now wouldn't it? Brings a new meaning to balls of steel... But ANYway... thanks for reading (and the laugh).

    I told you my mate got hit with a rubber bullet standing next to me. It can make a difference. keep protesting Tim, drip, drip, drip, it does make a difference. Take care, Richard

    Wow, thanks for the compliment. Call it pessimism or realism, but I feel it's not so very far off from happening! All these fabricated wars and whatnot...
