I FILL MY SWORD WITH PEACEFUL INK
I fill my sword with peaceful ink|
For tis a powerful pen,
It reaps rewards for many
Including mice and men.
For the pen is mightier
Than any sword of WAR,
It is wisdom's power of mind
Creating peace and more.
For many battles have been fought
Tis a crime of murder and sin,
Most always senseless battles
For the instigators of murder cannot win.
There will always be such pessimism
In the world for want of power,
The numbskulls of humanity
Who wreck lives hour after hour.
Causing fear misery and pain
But come the judgement at the gate,
Innocence will overcome my friend
The sinner's book will be too late.
