Poetry Thursday ... what the world needs now...

Somewhere somebody 
must have some sense. 
Men must see that 
force begets force, 
hate begets hate, 
toughness begets toughness. 
And it is all 
a descending spiral, 
ultimately ending 
in destruction 
for all and everybody. 
Somebody must have 
sense enough and 
morality enough 
to cut off 
the chain of hate and 
the chain of evil 
in the universe. 
And you do that by love.
 ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr 
– “Loving Your Enemies Speech”
 Nov. 7, 1957
