Just Jot It January. Je Suis Charlie

Death  stalked  the Paris Streets, in the early  morning sun

They came the  hooded cowards with their rocket launcher and gun.

They stormed into the office of Charlie Hebdo where men were armed  with the pen

They  killed them all, drowned  them in all blood  so  they might not draw again!


God bless the artists of Charlie Hebdo you have left your mark

Unlike  those  who shot  you down, all they left is dark.

A true and  kind  God  would never want us to kill in his name

The pen is mightier  than the sword as  truth  will always  proclaim.



They think the cycle is over yet it is only just begun.

The moon dances all the night then gives way to the sun.

People have fought so many wars, enough for them to be at an end.

Yet somehow still man cannot completely be man’s friend.

The Christians and the Muslins fought a holy war

It all started centuries ago and still they fight some more.

The world has endured two world wars the first was meant to end them all.

Yet even after that, the world is fighting still, just watch the armies fall.

The Holocaust was only a one off?? yet genocide prevails.

It is here and thriving just like a bomb of nails.

The word genocide did not exist until nineteen forty four

But it has been around since the beginning of time and will be here for evermore.

Hutu , Tutsi, Jews, Palestinians,Germans, English, Americans,every nation in the world.

They all profess that they want peace but they all hinder the peace flag being unfurled.

The money men like money and arms make lots of that, so they do not check credentials.

Politicians love money too, so they back wars. Buying and selling to the highest bidders like a bunch of whores.

So when will it all finish, when will the wars and hate all end.

Until everything changes, never  never my  friend.

    “They all profess that they want peace but they all hinder the peace flag being unfurled”. Not so sure about the credibility of this statement. Freedom is not free.

      Nothing is free, I understand but if only we could all agree to pull together to sort the world. But I know it is a pipe dream because the nature of mankind makes that an impossibility. Thanks for reading. ❤

    Hi Willow, there’s fairly compelling evidence that this was a staged event, and no one actually died! Well that’s the good news…

    touching Willow. Interesting you have a loon commenting too. Probs a Holocaust denier too. And the Moon landing took place in a shed in Arizona. And Princes Di is alive and well and living in a Yurt somewhere. People who look for conspiracies tend to find them whereas personal experience suggests most events are more cockup than conspiracy. Keep your sharp pencil pointing at life’s lunacies please.

      Thank you Geoff I was so shocked at this event and even now as I type even more horrible events are playing out. There is also another murderer on the scene now who killed a female police officer yesterday and today is holed up in a supermarket as a diversionary tactic! The other two are asking to be Martyrs … http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30708237 As for those who say this is not happening well. My Pen is sharp, my fingers are fast and my crayons are many! ❤
