Anthem For Humanity

by Eric Chaet

Humanity! Humanity!
Spiral thru the cosmic sea!
Hues like stones & pottery,
stunning truth & flattery!

Some are drunk
with unearned strength,
unaware of right & wrong;
some are sad & reel from blows
& strive to readjust with song!

More aware than chimpanzee,
ant or star-fish, grass or tree!
Susceptible to vanity,
wrath, & generosity!

Flags & borders, schemes of fools
make your thumbs & minds the tools
of war, instead of victory
over drought, flood, injury!

Humanity! Humanity!
Spiral thru the cosmic sea!
Child & elder, woman, man—
plan, & humbly act your plan!

    I don’t think the idea of national sovereignty is the big problem.
