Sticks 'n Stones Rap
"Hey World, Let's Rap"
Just a three letter "ism"
Or one tiny "ist"
Can create more trouble
Than an Enemy List!
Just take for instance
The word "extreme";
When given an "ist"
It turns ugly and mean.
Or what about an "ism",
when tacked on to race?
It fills the whole world
with fear and disgrace!
Then end the word "sex"
With an "ism" or "ist"
And a lady's long nails
Will be worse than a fist.
If we'd only remember
It is STICKS & STONES,
And NOT word-endings
That break our bones!
Then perhaps we could bury
Our "isms" and "ists"...
And show the whole world
How to co-exist!

The opinions expressed by authors do not necessarily reflect the opinion of FaithWriters.com.
As others have expressed, you have conveyed what appears to be a good message in an interesting way however we must be carefull not to leave the impression that co-existing at any or all costs is acceptable since we know that the kingdom of God is opposed to this world . Though we should not "label" people we must, as the salt of the world, take a stand against all which opposses our Lord & the truth. As the saying goes " love the people , hate the sin". We cannot compromise for the sake of getting along, lest we lose our saltiness & be judged useless by God. Praise the Lord
A clever way to get a serious matter across -- and short enough that a teen would read it -- GOOD JOB!
Wow!This is ingenious. Words are powerful. They inform our attitudes and instruct our actions. We actually pick sticks 'n stones because of words. You gave me something to ponder. Thanks for sharing this.
You are so clever, and this is the right format to communicate the message. I like this, Friend!
