SO SHOULD I
Jesus never killed anyone;
Brother, why would I?
He bore no sword, I'll bear no gun;
Sister, why should I?
John nor James ever cast a stone,
Nor, Brother, should you and I
Paul did and was called to atone;
So, Sister, are you and I.
We've fought our wars to make war cease;
Brother, you and I.
But Jesus blessed the peacemakers,
And, Sister, so do I.
They will be called children of God,
And, Brother, so would I,
Ere one more man's laid 'neath the sod;
Oh, Sister, so should I.

It might be a poem, it might be a lyric, it might be added to, it might not. But I wrote it down anyway.
