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?

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?
