GLOBAL JUSTICE NOW!

By: Alice Connally Fisk

+++

Global justice billions crave

Revolution now the wave.

Fresh solutions far and wide

peace procurement now the tide.

On waves and tides of cosmic scale

we all together sink or sail.

Worldwide poverty must Go

a conscientious overthrow.

Resolution now the call

a living wage for one and all.

Earths long-time shafted people roar

We Just Won’t Take It Anymore.

The working poor, the down and out

a risen people packing clout.

Fairness movements lead the way

People power here to stay.

The middle-class profoundly score

inequity shall rule no more.

Righting long wrongs one by one

disparity at last undone.

The fed-up masses fiercely vow

Economic Justice. Now!

Futuristic lively blends

pilot the progressive trends.

Trust ones heart evolve transcend

the Wisdom Way to comprehend.

The Common Dream now full force

a visionary, gutsy course.

Spring stretches to the stratosphere

as worlds of crucial change appear.

Peaceful revolution, Yes!

the human race to coalesce.

One Creator over ALL.

One last chance to heed the Call

Love’s the lesson. Life the school.

Peace On Earth. The Golden Rule.

Live the Lesson. Heal our Earth.

Imagine

Transformation now. Rebirth!

Spur the people stir the fire

Mobilize and walk the wire.

Back on track and off the dime

Revolution. One last time.

So amplify the drums and riff.

Be the ANSWER to WHAT IF.

Wow I'm very impressed. Even more so since she's 73... Very incredible. I'm happy she could see this moment of time.
