The Real Art of War by Bob Atkinson


The Real Art of War

(c)2012 Bob Atkinson

no matter whom you fight
no matter what the foe
take care to treat them gently
for someday you will know

they may become one of you
or you'll be one of them
and bitter feelings left behind
can bring all life to ruin

don't fight the enemy toe to toe
engulf him with your good
and let him know when he dances
you'll clap to his wild moves

try to understand his reason
try to know him quite well
try to give him your good side
before you send him straight to hell

avoid mass violent carnage
collect his units whole
cut him off and let him find
his strength can't carry him home

take him to your good side
tell him all you know
and let his own reason
upon all loving peace bestow

if your good side is shallow
if your pride is false
let him know you have learned
from his fathers' patient talk
