Monologue Mania Day #  1704 Peaces by Janet S. Tiger (c) Oct. 16,  2018

Meant as an interval between longer pieces.

  (Part of  the countdown for Halloween - only this is..... the real scary stuff)

                                                 by Janet S. Tiger  (c) 2018

       (Actor is solemn because the actor cannot figure out at first how to transmit this homonym-based idea to the audience- and neither can the writer)


And not a piece of pie.  Or a piece of......(sighs)  no,.let's keep this PG.....

Peace and quiet.  Piece of cake!  Piece of work......The work of peace.....

Peaceful.  Full of peace.  Mmmmmm.....Full of a piece of cake!

The justice of the peace......The peace of justice.......

The peace.  The worldwide kind where you beat your swords into plowshares.

And not just that .....

More than one peace....all the peaces in the world.

And not pieces of eight!  And certainly not...pieces of hate......

Yes, let's talk about.......

Universal peace!......everyone dreams of it, hopes for it, prays for it......but no one thinks it can happen because at its root, it is scary.

More frightening than all the scary movies, all the scary books and TV shows that are about real scary stuff......Why?

It is a scary thought because......how much war do we need before we get to piece together......a real peace.

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And now, back to reality.......maybe one day, instead of going to pieces, we can piece together....peace.....

        (Exits to work towards .....a peaceful peace)
