Harmony doesn't sell
half as well
as does conflict.
Can't we all just get along?

Love this. Reminds me of a song... 99 Red Balloons - "The war machine springs to life, opens up one eager eye"! Nena was the artist, I think.

Yes! I have not heard that song - I recall two versions of it - in several years now.

Thank you!

As a writer, I;d like to suggest switching the order of the last two words on the final line. I feel like doing this would add a better flow to the piece. Now, on the other hand, you could have done that in order to allow the reader to have a sound conflict while reading and if you did do that, well.... bravo to you, my friend! 

On the side of the reader, I do feel something for this. I relate. God, do I relate. It's a sad truth, a little bit of a jolt and even a tad bit new to some of us who never realized this before. I don't like this. Too much conflict, too much noise, too much yelling - we do need to get along, respectfully. 

Thankk you for sharing, my friend. :clap:

The sound conflict was indeed my goal. :nod: All of the comments received so far have been excellent, and enlightening! While it is certain that many people wish the human race could live in absolute peace and harmony, it is an impractical wish and an impossible goal.

I believe the subject to be an excellent one to include in one's writing, and I had this notion firmly in mind when I wrote my brief poem. Thank you for your response and appreciation! :)

Ah, perfect! Impossible is sadly something I never took into consideration when it came to the human race. Do I think it will happen in my lifetime? No. Could it? Have no idea. But, with poems like this, we could one day see a mass realization of our faults and something could happen. :shrug:

I agree! 

My pleasure, my friend.
