Get Rid Of The Advertisements

What is Wrong with Right?
 
There once was a pearl of great beauty
Given free to simple creatures,
Then some declared it their duty
To display its lustrous features.

They built containers of gold
Adorning them with fine gemstones
Declaring, “Our design to hold
The pearl is best, and ours alone.”

Inspecting the lovely boxes,
People began to pick and choose.
Disregarding paradoxes,
They argue, fight and war, but lose.

For they’ve forgotten and ignored,
Disputing the package of
What’s at the center of this hoard,
The beautiful pearl that is Love.

Let us break the boxes open
And never allow them to hide
The reason we can have hope in
Our redemption, which lies inside.
