Unicorns and peace

The dream of world peace 

Is as illusive as a unicorn

Not just any unicorn,

But an elephant unicorn…

With a mermaid on top.

Millenia have passed,

Yet history remains stagnant.

The same foolish cycle,

New players each round.

Things improve, then get bad, 

Then improve once again.

It’s enough to make even

The steel-stomached seasick.

The choice is not ours

To take part in this cycle.

But the choice we do have

Is our response once called upon.

So cling to that glimmer of hope 

With all of your might.

Because in dark times it will guide you

And in joyous times regale.
