Father to Son

Daddy, what is poverty?
Well son, it’s when people are really really poor.
Oh right, OK.

Yes my son.
What is famine?
It’s when lots of people go very very hungry, and die through lack of food.
Oh right, OK.

Daddy, daddy, what is war?
It’s when two countries fight.
Why do they fight?
Well they can fight over land, or religion, or oil or diamonds.
Oh right, OK.

But daddy.
Yes my son.
It isn’t right, is it.
No my son, it’s wrong, it’s very very wrong
