“Pirate’s Parley” – written and read through Walter

Never a wrong can been done
or a sleight cause a fight
unless the person arises
and feels they are right.

These arisings for no one
all bark and no bite,
conflict seems to appear
on the playground of life.

Does very peace take flight
when tempers flare bright
or is it simply obscured
as day turns to night?

Allowing pirate’s parley
affords sobering sight
and quarter is granted,
compassion is might!
