People, people everywhere

Nary a human in sight.

Politics, religion, racism all over

Fanaticism that’s not right.

 

I have but a small dream

Of people living without fear

In a world at peace with itself

A universal family, all are dear.

 

Without fear of offending

And fear of being offended

Every heart filled with love

Bereft of umbrage and hatred.

 

Cleanse religious, political jingoism

With perfume of tolerance ‘n’ love.

Be not a hawk, the bird of prey,

Be the symbol of peace, the dove.

 

Smear not sanguine, the heart

In blood of a single innocent.

Rescind lust for victory and power

Shun the fraud, for ‘tis transient.

 

Lead those on perdition’s path,

To manner humane and kind.

Turn bloodthirsty guns ‘n’ bullets

Into petals floatin’ in the wind.

 

Wipe the arrogance and hatred,

‘Tis grime of heart intolerant.

Preserve the treasure of flowers,

Let the heart shelter love vibrant.
