Poem - Wartimes

Wartimes are dire times   by Yola Plumblossom. 
I don't believe in violence  
I hate it very much
I'd rather live in friendship
with kindness, peace and such

But when it's used against me,
there's nothing I can do
In order to defend myself,
I have to be violent too.

So enemies, they will find out,
when attacking home and kin,
that this peaceful hobbitlass
a monster contains within.

That's why I loath all violence,
It brings up a bad in me
an anger and a will to kill
that I'd rather never see.

Yes, wartimes they are dire times
But heed we must to war's call
'Cause when we stand divided
Freedom's banner will surely fall!
