I Would Not Push the Button

“I would not push the button first”

The Gentle Man confessed

“Appeaser”,” Traitor”, “Coward”

Was the outcry in the press?

The Gentle Man replied

“I believe in peace”

“I think it’s for the best”

“Not to send millions”

“Of people to their death”

A nutter on the tele said,

“To be seen as a great leader”

“I’m really in a rush”

“Which is why I’m very clear”

“That the button I would push”

The Gentle Man shook his head

Listen to those who’ve served

Put the arms race  in reverse

For the only race that matters

Is the human race on earth
