What’s So Funny ’bout Peace, Love And Understanding

Whats So Funny bout Peace, Love And Understanding short poem

Uploaded by Andrew Darlington

(for the Painter Girl)

we fight the hatreds
of the world
not with new hatreds,
but with beauty,
come
each erotic kiss
each moment of passion
we share
tilts the global balance,
love me
with urgency and desperation
and we can save the world…
