The MillenniumPublished by Susan on 08/10/2003 (2851 reads)
We'll have no peace on this our earth
If we persist in pride of birth;
If we believe our special race
Above all others should have place;
Boasting: of peoples there are none
To equal us beneath the sun.
Aye, though we flaunt a flaming flag
Let us admit it's just a rag;
And humbly confess 'twould be good
Could we abolish Nationhood.
We will go far to vanquish fear
When we forget the word frontier .
When classes shall be leveled down
And equal counted king and clown;
When rich and poor, four letters vain
Are terms outworn of pride and pain;
And all religions equal stand.
And each to each holds out the hand.
When we agree men crime intent
Are victims of environment;
And yellow, brown and black and white
Just human beings in God's sight
When colour, creed and class combine
To seek in man the source divine.
When strife of clan forever end
And man to man be friend and friend;
When though we value fatherland
It ma for human freedom stand:
Then to the world at last will come
Peace and the blest millennium.
