A person who listens and feelsand thinks, then speaks and acts,Will not believe them when they saythat war is fought for peace, or claimthis weapon system saves more lives,to justify one final lie:No cost too great! No price too high!Will understand that torn off headsaren’t worth a dime, on ours or on the other side.Will call to God for explanations,and hearing none, will look withinthe soul that is in every manand every woman, every child,in every bud on every branch,in every root in every grave. Will give it voice in measured wordsand clear-eyed vision of the daywe work together in the waythat water flows and moons revolve,relentless and in harmony,to end the hate and butchery . . .To heal the earth.To mend the sky.
