    So many contradictions, and how some of use peace as an excuse to use force.

    A very thoughtful haiku. I've unfortunately experienced this very early one morning and although just an early commuter, felt I was going to be attacked, but by the police. There was no one else on the station platform but me and a large group of heavily riot armoured and bored policeMEN.

    Perfect! This is award winning for everything that you have managed to encompass in so few words. Thank you!

    So well crafted! I've always been struck by the irony of this issue.
