What does the World Need? Poem written for a Newsfeed Challenge.
What the world needs is love;
Cast off your weapons and stand down.
Send the olive branch and the dove
To every Nation and every town.

What the world needs is hope;
A future tainted not by war.
Empowered, we all have the scope
To see the life we could strive for.

What the world needs is peace;
A place where gunfire's never heard.
This endless hatred needs to cease.
The concept is not so absurd.

What the world needs is tolerance
For every colour and every creed.
To fellow men we look askance -
Despite the same blood we all bleed.

What the world needs is a miracle
To turn us down the correct path.
Human beasts are drawn to kill;
Forget about the aftermath.
