ELECTION RANTS
SEND IN THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS

I’m not kidding!
Okay, I am.

But it makes perfect sense.
Why send arms dealers
to broker peace
in the Middle East.
They don’t profit from peace.

But K-1 teachers
have all the skills necessary
to handle the situation.
They don’t ask much pay.
They know how to handle bullies.
They sit the little troublemakers
in separate corners
enforce a time out
and absolutely forbid
the use of weapons.

They teach order
in the classroom
as well as the play ground
how to share one’s crayons
raise your hand,
talk only when called upon
take turns and be polite.
And if you don’t learn
the lesson
they will not pass you.

It’s back to kindergarten
where the children of this world
are taught rules
patience and love
for a peaceful tomorrow.
