Peace Poetry

Religions are based on scripture, which is mostly poetry. So it only makes
sense
that religious conflict must be resolved through poetry, and not through
politics,
negotiation, or war. I propose that all religious conflicts be redefined
poetically,
so that they can be resolved without bloodshed, winners, or losers. So let's
sharpen our pencils, not our swords; send missives, not missiles; and apply
our
minds to metaphor, simile, rhyme, meter, and prosody, but not pomposity,
animosity, ferocity, atrocity, or monstrosity.
