Thinking

What does an elephant think about

As he stands inside a zoo

What passes through his mind

As he’s looking back at you?

 

What does a pigeon think about

As he soars above the crowds

Perhaps it just a simple thing

As he plays amongst the clouds.

 

A single ant is scurrying

His job it must be done

The others they depend on him

The many and the one.

 

A crow is thinking, I can tell

He cocks his head at me

Is he looking at my lunch

Does he think it’s free?

 

Behind, beside and over there

Are those we do not know

But they have thoughts and feelings

Just like that silly crow

 

What does a person think about

And he looks upon another

Race and colour notwithstanding

Could he be my brother?

 

This crazy world that we call ours

We’re only tenants here

Mind your manners, p’s and q’s

Or next the end is near!

The Battle

 

Greed and Hate took a walk one dawn

To see what they could see

Imagine their surprise that day

When they ran into me!

 

“Go away!” I said to them,

“Your presence here is wrong!”

They smiled that smile that said it all

That said: “we do belong”.

 

I held my ground and cried for help.

I called the best I could.

There was an answer to my plea.

And those that came were Good.

 

Compassion showed and Love as well,

But Tolerance led the charge.

Hope took part and Kindness too,

And Confidence was large.

 

It took us all together,

To banish those with Greed.

This battle fought is never done,

When Evil’s what you feed.
