By Celia Cash
The world is groaning, crumbling
moaning, under the strain.
Earthquakes, Floods, Disaster!
Isn't it peace we seek, not pain?
Hard to Keep your Balance
When there are wars on every plain
The Holy Land less Holy
and yet the warriors stop
to Kneel upon their prayer mats
offering prayers of worship
Doesn't it make you wonder
"Whats so wrong with a Democrat
who refuses to choose sides and Blunder
rather shows respect for All Humanity?"
Because prejudice is never where its at.
Makes me Ponder on the Pleas of Millions in Unison
Why can't it Harness power to fight nuclear Rain?
Springtime Arriving with Hopeful Moments.
Smell the Roses, watch the Sunsets
Life is Short and Before you know it
one soul exits as a Brand New One enters
Show Mother Earth and all her Creatures
Respect and Love so Peace can Feature.
