It’s Time

It’s time to run to the mothers
For the fathers have waged war
They have kicked strangers and children
And now their fathers will push you to the floor

It’s time to turn to the mothers
The givers of billions of lives before
More likely to find solutions
Than to send their children to war

More likely to nurture and think
Of how to better the lives they have borne
Than to destroy and dominate
Those already battle-worn

It’s time to listen to the mothers
They listened when the fathers wept
But now is her time for action
Help her to appear on the temple steps
