We grow stronger every day,

As intelligence is updated,

With the latest weaponry,

At a press of a button we can destroy,

A nation, people and our environment.

The gas that filled the air,

The gas that filled the chambers,

The gas that dispersed the people,

The gas that made them cry.

As their skins and bodies smouldered,

As the tears burnt their eyes,

As their lungs collapsed.

As the fish were killed,

As the rivers over floated with contamination.

Yet it is the weapons used behind closed doors,

That causes destruction.

A thought, intention, word and action.

That destroys Peace, Love and Kindness.
