Whaur are the peacemakers ?

Eh’m no’ English, French, Russian or American
Eh dinnae want tae end up wi’ meh body irradiatin'.
Eh’m no' that feared o' Koreans or Iranians - 
It’s a’ oor warmongers wha are the scary anes.
Ye ken, those guys shoutin' their mouths aff and murderin' a chance

O’ turnin' the human tragedy intae romance.









Postscript : I was going to illustrate my doggerel with an image of the suffering of the survivors of the atomic bomb which fell on Hiroshima in 1945 but I found it too horrific and upsetting. It is difficult to believe that OUR elected leaders could want us to be in the possession of weapons so monstrously destructive. It is more upsetting to know that some of our own electorate are content for the UK to possess these weapons too. Are you such a one?
