War of Ideals - by Bob Atkinson

War of Ideals
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

seems here in my point of view
there lies a goal supreme
in some who profess profound right
to press upon us principles of their dreams

they seem so spiritual
accepting only their view of life
taking up arms to force
another to abide

abide by their righteousness
for they view themselves as saints
not understanding right of purpose
requires totality of restraint

restraint from hurting fellow man
no harm to us can they
in their goodness of purpose
to this world display

if, on the other hand
some hurt the ones they love
then willingness to kill and maim
takes license from their cause
