Way of the Tiger

Why would
a nation
built on peace
have need
for armed forces?

Why do officers
of justice
carry firearms?

Why would your neighbors
study the martial arts?

Listen;
the thorn
defends the rose
and harms only the few
that would destroy
the blossom.

Is it not better
to be a warrior
in a garden
than a gardner
in a war?
