A brief plea for peace in the form of a spatial poem - Quills 2018 Honorable Mention.
Silly Boys

Let's have strategic talks:
address those fatal flaws dividing us
before that day the dreaded Reaper knocks.
We must move fast to stop the ticking doomsday clocks
but act by casting votes, not throwing rocks.
There's never need to scream and cuss
until compassion walks.
If we
don't stop
the wars
then we
will drop
in scores.
Don't be so stupid, boys.
