72. Joe Volk--Dear World Leaders


We,

Kids

Say that we are sorry for all your troubled sleep.

 

We also think that you are wrong,

To not even try to get

Along.

We can do it.

Now it’s your turn.

Maybe adults could learn

A thing or two from kids.

 

It shouldn’t be this big a deal!

And to all warring countries, we appeal!

 

Stop fighting!

Don’t shoot!

We don’t think the bigger issue is who owns the land.

 

What matters more to us,

And hopefully to you,

Is that if everyone gets along,

Trouble is easy to get through!

 

To us it is quite boring

For everyone to be warring.

We may not understand the fight,

But what we do understand is that it’s not right!

 

So we,

Children

Ask for you to stop.

 

Sincerely,

Children of the World
