POETRY FORMAT, 15 Jul 2019
Pity the hollow men who
only know how to say No!
After creating false gods and
phallic weapons in the image of
themselves they defend their world
to death against the Woman who dares
to weave a new world of Peace.
They smash her loom
turn her shuttles into guns
censor her Word
crush her Love and kill
So how can we save ourselves from
these men who only know
how to turn the earth
into money and debate
who has the biggest and
most powerful weapon
for protecting his riches
even at the risk
of destroying us all
in their nuclear war?
