Peace Talks With The Virus
Losing a war, you
Sue for peace so
They've set up a committee to
What terms to put to such a foe?
The offer of a Non-Aggression pact?
An appeal to our common heritage?
Hints of retaliation in kind?
A favorable Trade Deal?
A new World Order, even perhaps
Membership of the Security Council or as a last resort
Immunity from War Crimes prosecution?
First thing on the agenda is
How to communicate, then
Agree upon a neutral venue.
But what fool would risk his neck
By attending such a Conference?
And if they did show up, (which is
Doubtful), a confirmed pacifist
Would have to fight to
See eye to eye with a billion
Enemy envoys sitting in
An empty chair
