Flowers ARE Better Than Bullets

Flowers induce romance

Flowers induce peace

After a lover’s quarrel

Their fragrant beauty

Is a force of nature

Too splendid to be ignored

Nor appreciated for it’s true value

Bullets on the other hand

Induce a false sense of security

They bring about a flurry of violence

One single bullet, yes that’s all it takes

Drains the  light from the brightest life

Flowers Are Better than Bullets

This is dedicated to the memory of Allison Krause , a 19 year old protester at Kent State University in on  May 4, 1970. She was slain by ONE BULLET.
