Rage inside hardly stops
God laughs our species flops
Planet a gift of sacred trust
Let’s harness intention and thrust

Leaves on trees shrivel die
All this prosperity yet we cry
Potential’s promises denied
Where is our genius and pride

Bombing easy explode the moon
Much at peril heading to ruin
Enough boy toys time to grow wise
Allow compassion see rage in eyes

Look for solutions no dropping bombs
Missiles cause much greater harms
Invite wise women we know
Steward the planet run the whole show

With intuition feminine wiles
Forget politics turn rage into smiles
Focus on what doesn’t serve
Discover while keeping verve

War’s not the answer only brings more
Enemies remember revenge finds a door
Dooming children to a grave we fear
Why not a heart song salvation’s so near

Enough for all more than enough
Explore how to care not being tough
All people want to bloom in life
Food shelter learning peace little strife

All deserve safety opportunity to grow
Abundance here in a paradise we know
Our resources more than enough
Distribution challenge deliver right stuff

Resource or distribution challenge?

If you were in charge what priorities how would you use planetary resources?
