No More War Toys in Todays World

Dont teach war

When you do your holiday shopping
And you’re picking out the toys

Please remember that your choices
Will be building girls and boys.

Tools and science sets and paints
And books of other lands

Should now replace the things of war
In all our children’s hands.

Give them blocks for building peace;
Our youth can make it true.

And toys that make a game of war
Should never come from you!

War’s too grim a thing for fun
And much too sad for play.

So give our youth constructive toys
As a promise of a better day.

Author unknown, written circa 1932
