Not all writers start wars.

Some gather shards of peace,
piece them together with gold-coloured glue,
serenade giants
so that the world doesn’t end too soon.

Some are prophets
to keep brooding philosophers company
and conspiracy theorists from feeling
they’ve gone certifiable.
They also describe our individual madness-es
so that we do not feel alone,
and so that we do not forget what’s important.

Others paint flowers via the written word
(while bombs fall all around)
to remind us of the humanity we hide
beneath cloaks drenched in our neighbour’s blood.
