Dogs for Peace

Pity the poor peace symbol
Once we hand drew them on signs
to march and let the world know
we should give peace a chance

A graphic, so simple, so elegant
Just a circle and three lines
calling for a revolution
to give peace a chance

Today Wal-Mart’s website
is your peace symbol headquarters
Just type peace symbol in its search box
and you can order it on military style hats,
trash cans, underwear, bed spreads, jewelry
and much much more.

Wouldn’t your cat or dog
love the peace symbol

on “a funky tie dye ID,
the perfect groovy accessory
for any pet still spinning the Grateful Dead
and daydreaming of Woodstock.”


What incredible irony
In a world overflowing
with war and hatred
peace has gone to the dogs
