      Wow! Very well stated! I'm going to be sharing this one!

    We have gunners sitting
    On plush office chairs, controlling drones,
    Mowing down women and
    Children all over the world.
    They fight terrorism
    So tis said,
    But the real menace
    Is here among us:
    Couch potato inertia,
    Discouragement, apathy,
    Hatred,
    And the perverse lifestyles
    That go along with it all.
    We cause the wars and the torture
    When we are sluggish and vindictive;
    We destroy this fair earth
    When we refuse to be warriors in discipline;
    We destroy our own lives
    When we demand luxuries,
    Forgetting that the ultimate luxury is

    To stop demanding.
