Takes years to build a friend, my friend.
Takes seconds to destroy,
The bellicose, the blunt, the wrong,
The insults and the coy?
Takes seconds for it all to blow
Like gossamer in wind....
With that in mind, what chance ya give
Destruction to rescind?
Chuck in the pearl of humankind
The hate, the greed, the sin
The you'll begin to realize
The depth of **** we're in.
To win this fight, to win this war
To exorcise a change
Will mean we let the women rule
The world, to rearrange
Priorities of human nature,
Mans tendency to fight,
And the way we just discard the peace
As if we had the right?
Ponder this my brother,
Cast aside your wrath
For human kinds survival
Is dependent on this broth.

Began as a poetic response to Stevo's poem, "Inequity" and grew into a realization that we had to find a solution to mans' penchant for aggression.
Maybe, just maybe there is good solid sense in putting the women in charge?
