put up your nukes

Don’t you know,
war isn’t a video game—
that you get to choose sides?

Don’t you know,
that when you strike a match,
something’s gonna burn?

Isn’t it better,
to strike up a conversation,
for someone’s mind to turn?

Don’t you know,
that if you live under the threat of war,
the rocket blasts will soon follow?

Don’t be a walking time bomb,
can’t you see,
you’re surrounded by land mines?

And don’t be imagining
your nukes are bigger than mine—
what good will that do?

When he was vice president, Joe Biden declared, “If we want a world without nuclear weapons, the United States must take the initiative to lead us there.” And, he added, “as the only nation to have used nuclear weapons, we bear a great moral responsibility to lead the charge.” Excerpt from Opinion | A world without nuclear weapons

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment, You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.” Bible, Isaiah 54:17
