World Peace



Damn it. I was supposed to post something really silly today. Instead I wrote this half-baked 'Save The World' poem in a fit of self-righteousness, prompted by the complete lack of media coverage for the International Day Of Peace, which I also happened to ignore.

APATHY

I don't care what your religion is
As long as you
Never kill another human being

I don't care what your beliefs are
As long as you
Don't impose them on others

I don't care if you're offended
As long as you
Know you are no more important than anyone else

I don't care who you are
Come have a beer with me

Love it and to think that "I don't care" featured in your piece so many times! Now you can't hassle me for always saying it :-P

Who do you think my muse is?

"I don't care", my favourite phrase!

As in: "I don't care you flooded the unit, just fix it."

:)

Media is not interesyed in peace, doesn't sell enough dead tree.

Jeroen + Beer = Disaster Of Muppet-Like Proportions

Great poem, Daniel.

You seem to be on a bit of a crusade...

Thanks muchly, Rob.

And Sandra, I think it might be out of my system for now.

Or not.

I'll have a beer with you. If mine can be a bourbon. Or a bacardi breezer... It is Spring you know.

Happy International Life of Peace to you x

Nice one Daniel. Next time I'm in Sydney I might take you up on that one.

Daniel Hatadi said...

M, James, let's drink!

And it doesn't have to be beer, the word just worked well for the poem.
