Poems -> Religious :  Quakers on Pacifism
Tags: Quakers   pacifism  
 
It is not "P. C." to be anti-war,
Or to refuse to stuff one's face with meat.
Quakers are not pacifists any more

By definition. It's not like before.
These things are individual. We can cheat.
It is not "P. C." to be anti-war.

We cannot break an invisible law.
We rubbed it out, you see. I should repeat:
Quakers are not pacifists any more.

Some are. Some arent. There's nothing we stand for.
We can have bacon, toast or Shreaded Wheat.
It is not "P. C." to be anti-war -

To be vegetarian, vegan or
In any way, restrict what one may eat.
Quakers are not pacifists any more.

This, Friends, is the conclusion we must draw.
Won't vote on this; we might just face defeat.
It is not "P. C." to be anti-war.
Quakers are not pacifists any more.
