We can bring the world to peace or let the tyrants rage,
we can watch the glaciers disappear or bring a golden age.
We can trick the genii back into the bottle once again,
plant trees throughout the world and watch them bring the rain.
We can see what people do when they have fresh air to breathe,
watch the children drink and play, in water that is clean.
We can stop the belicosity of people now in power,
stop them flying aeroplanes into assorted towers;
not let them sell us fear and take our freedom from us,
not let them tell us evil, is everywhere around us.
We can clean the governments… the water and the air,
but first we have to bring the world – and ourselves to care.
We can stop them sending armies for other people’s stuff –
but like Peter Finch and J-Lo, first we have to say… enough.
