As flowers blossom across this Earth,

Blanketing our home & people with beautiful peace…

There are also weeds that spread.

Ravaging the garden with ugly, UGLY war.

 

Like any other plant, the weed starts small.

Growing and growing, left unchecked.

The weed spreads, entangling the entire population.

And then enslaving the unfortunate in its roots.

 

Like any other plant, the weed has SEVERAL names.

Boneparte, Hitler, Hussein, Gadaffi…and Putin.

The growth is wild, nature is in chaos.

Over and over again, throughout history.

 

Like any other plant, it can destroy.

And it does with anger and hate.

Replacing birdsong and laughter…

With screams and silence.

 

And like any other plant, the weeds can be killed.

For where there is chaos & villainy…

There is ALWAYS order & hope.

Over and over again, throughout history.

 

The resilience & kindness of people…

clipping away these evil thorns.

Singing, praying, rallying and helping.

Through the fear and back to the hope.

 

A madman may incite destruction.

He may win today in his chair.

But it is the people outside

Who won yesterday and will win again tomorrow.

 

A tyrant by any other name…

Is just another cliche.

A war by any other name…

Is just a waste.
