let them ring!

To add more to this stone soup than hard arts
To turn all fists to flowers,all guns to guitars
To serenade sunrise with non-radio silence
or birdsong wilde as worlds without walls
To reclaim warzones from digital children
so they will not grow in to drones
Turn all bullies into victims/all victims forgive them
that sunshine and optimism be based upon action and results
That all advertising is personal,voluntary and permission-given
and all belief systems autonomous and self-supporting
Like learning-continuous,free,public,private ,universal and wise
enough to incorporate all dubious propositions and label them as such
censoring nothing,adding more to curricula as knowledge increases
Heal the hard of hearing-that they might admit angels in their auricles
Allow all vulnerable to express artistically,supported by foundation garments
Let language grow,so we might taste delights in foreign syllables
May borders fall,so refugees might make communities
Open cells to all of peace,so only the violent seek deferred release
Add to wealth of air and water a certain purity of recycled emotions
Let justice be judged,and juries be juried,and media mediated
So direct experience allows us less carp and complaint
more bright responses.May we be worthy of all celestial interventions
until none are necessary,and we can live quite well via our own responsibilities..
