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.
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.
(Poem / lyrics written in 2012 by a 73-year-old great-grandmother)
