Oh America! Learn To Love Peace!


Oh America!
when will you learn
learn to love peace?

When will you make
a love of peace
your national dream?

Oh America!
when will you learn
not to fight wars?


Oh America!
when will you learn
not to try to win

conflict foreign wars
wars that cannot be won
learn to win peace

learn to love peace
learn to worship peace
learn to honour peace!
