Allowed the growth of Race.
Race is all about crossing Space
In the shortest Time.
To save Face,
Many of one Race
Insist they own Space;
Want their own Place.
To win Face,
Someone might fake the Time
It took to cross a Space
And claim a Place
On the winner’s stand and Time,
Their grand Smile
For awhile, so in Style.
Style is a sign of Race,
What kind of Face
Do you want to Grace
What comes into and on your Place?
Is there any kind of Reason or Rhyme
To the Time
That we spend trying to Smile —
Trying to use Style
To win Face over Face,
If it means that Life
Is Rife with Strife?
If there were more Time
And we listened for the Rhyme
Would we finally See
The ultimate futility
Of Racing Race over Race,
Face over Face?
How Odd of God
To give us Life
And then program us to a Life of Strife.
Perhaps the Miller’s Wife
Was right all Along —
And stupid “Might Makes Right”
Is just another way of saying: “Fight Fakes Sight.”
For if we could truly See
That separates you and Me —
Is nothing but illusion and a sick Joke
Not worth the Choke
Of atomic Fire
Forever and forevermore
(It isn’t worth the bleeding sore).
We could reach our hands Out
Across the Space
Has gone! We’ve won, we all shall Live!
We do not care; we all shall Give:
Love to our common planet, our Space.
Love to our common people, our Race.
Love each moment of our common Time,
Echo, echo each to each our common rhyme.
Our common rhyme.”
I think, it’s about Time.
Let’s save this Place!
Let’s forget Race.
Face it, Face
Is a Race that can’t be won;
We’re already one.
We are already One.
We can pull and we can Push;
We can blow ourselves to Mush —
But the fact remains that we are One
So whoever wins hasn’t truly Won.
They are only has-been nth Place.
We are all the Human Race,
And we all share this little Space.
Listen to the echo of our common Rhyme
Let’s use Love — Love to fill our common Time.
