The Pen is mightier than the Sword

For though the Sword is stronger

It lives on olny as long as the welder

The written word last longer

The Sword is weaker than the Pen

When the swordsman dies, it's gone

But if you strike a writer down

The words he penned live on

The Sword can olny fight body

It rusts and crumbles with time

And wouldn't it be more satisfying

To conquer your enemies mind?

The world would be a better place

If Pen fought all the words of man

To conquer not bodies by Sword

But minds by the written hand

The Pen is mightier than the Sword

For thus it's life is longer

Swords are steel, hate and blood

Strange that words are stronger
