Of Choices and Sacrifices

An abundance
of bullets has never
been a guarantee of peace,

a dearth of them,
and those willing to use them,
is an open invitation for domination.

There is a choice
to be made between being
free or being subservient to armed masters.

Sacrifices
are required
for either decision.

One response to “Of Choices and Sacrifices

  1. With the phrase “open invitation for domination ” you’ve made me re-think some of my lifelong tenets regarding war and weapons, but on balance, I don’t think I can change them.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
