Humankind Be Both

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Humankind designed with minds entwined

be resigned inclined refined aligned

both kind and unkind never confined

The world is my country, all mankind my brethren and to do good is my religion

_____________________________________

The ambition is solitary

World domination is not the goal

Is happiness enough to fulfill?

My calm is my sanctuary

Country walks fill an important role

All creatures great and small matter still

Mankind is evolutionary

Are we able to display control?

My fear is that we won’t know until

Brethren and sistren may be wary

And we wonder what we can do as a whole

To cover the planet in goodwill

Do good until it’s involuntary

Good until we all emerge a whole

Is this a struggle that’s all uphill?

My trust is in all of existence

Religion is peace with persistence.

Who Would Jesus Execute?

_____________________________________

Who designed capital punishment?

Would you acknowledge our ignorance?

Jesus knows enough are innocent

Execute mankind’s indifference.
