Example Poem
Missiles Launched
The hawks of war are given cause
by rogue depots exporting hate.
Their missiles met now with applause
from hating killers may tempt fate.
Unsheathe  the swords of war.
Let power fall to terrorist
Organs of any stripe, then know
that peaceful folks will not resist
what will most surely be the flow.
Unsheathe  the swords of war.
Israel has restrained and we
at cabinet levels have been mute,
regarding retaliatory
actions. But at some time we’ll shoot.
Unsheathe  the swords of war.
