When the demons come

Do not fight them

You will only lose

Welcome them in:

Invite them for a cup of tea

Ask them to hang

Their fangs up in the hall

And put their claws

on the kitchen table.

Invite them to relax

Recline and take a pause;

Ask them their favourite book,

Where they grew up,

Wage peace, not war,

Reconcile your differences,

You’ll understand that

The fear they make

is just for show:

They’re more scared that you are

after all.
