A poem by Ted Vollers--in his words, "Dreamed one night and then written out by Ted"
Occupy the Earth
Arise, arise, all Human Billions,
Take up this Universal Path.
Peaceful join all sisters, brothers,
Yet Adamant our joined wills.
In Democracy Abides All Power,
If only we United are.
From Arab Spring to cities world wide,
We must become One Family.
Look within your self and see
what it takes to make all free.
Treat all as you would be treated,
Use only what you need to be.
Let them not divide and rule us,
We must all in amity,
Work together as we're able
To ensure we all live free.
There are neither police nor prisons
Suffice our United Voice to quell.
Occupy where e'er you come from,
City street or prison cell.
World divided, haves and have nots,
Will end in loss of Liberty.
All together, World United,
We must prevail or who'll be free?
Tune of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, Ode to Joy.
Everything is simpler than we can imagine, at the same time more complex and intertwined than can be comprehended--Goethe, Maxims & Reflections
