Boiled Down and Down
POETRY FORMAT, 22 Apr 2019
There can be no world peace
without world-wide justice.
No universal world justice
without enforceable world law.
And no usable world law
without a world government
to create and make it work.
All based on the vote and good will
of the world’s people and, yes, nature!
Natures rules are simple and brutal.
As are nuclear and future weapons of war!
So we MUST now use “non-violence”
and our emotionally laced intellect
to rise above our base instincts and
handle warring, earth deep pollution
and the coming “warming”!
Old, drafted peace warriors should
be our first line of defense and change.
We can make a revolution
to create a world government,
peacefully and democratically
and grow into our more noble ideals
the next man-made
holocaust or worldwide war!
