The writing group gave out "Upin Arms" as a stimulus. This what happened in light of the spate of knive deaths on our streets.

Up in Arms

Up in Arms

Arms held high
The children cry
For food and drink
And what else you think?

Arms held high
The fans they cry
For United, Rovers
Even when its all over..

Arms held high
Demonstrators cry
no wa r, for peace
and end in arms
held high of P'lice.

So now we cry
for arms held high
six gun, hand gun, blade, no matter
Death on streets
is the modern chatter.

  Whoot. Go peace. I never quite understood the whole war for peace concept. I liked this a lot. It's very to-the-point, which is nice. I also like the repetition of Arms Held High. It's pretty cool how the poem almost comes as a surprise too. The title makes you think this is going to be about some other kind of battle and then you get this.

"six gun, hand gun, blade, no matter"

that line just didn't quite fit. otherwise this was a really good write.
