Ode to Peace - by Steve Price

The problem, as far as I can see,
Is caused by people who aren’t me.
I’m never wrong. I always care.
I’ve never, ever been unfair.
When it comes to point of view,
Thine is murky; mine is true.
If by ego you weren’t blinded,
You wouldn’t be so narrow-minded.
Why say it’s this, when I know it’s that?
It’s people like you who started this spat.
Don’t tell me what’s wrong when I know what’s right.
I know that you’re doing it just for spite.
I’m in this fight because you’re in it.
I reject the idea that no one can win it.
My wrath is righteous, my burden, large.
We’d be better off with me in charge.
I’ve always known just what to do
With people who are just like you.
