Negotiate Peace

Let's sit down
Talk through all the issues
Negotiate peace

Find our common ground
Compromise on differences
Negotiate peace

Admit our mistakes
Find ways to do it right now
Negotiate peace

Create a system
United Nations together
Negotiate peace

Xxxxxxx

This poem was inspired by the photo and linked up at sepia Saturday.  The photo was taken on the 17th July 1945 at the Potsdam Conference which brought together the leaders of the USA, Britain and the Soviet Union following the end of the War in Europe.

If only it was that simple. I'm afraid some of the negotiations were 'lost in translation'. Well done.

Fine sentiments - practice doesn't quite match up.

Nice sentiment, but I don't think peace will ever happen. Wars seem to be way more popular.
