I’d like to make peace at the well
and have that agreement perpetuated
to everyone who comes next
so long as blood and DNA flows.
I’d like the peace we make to be
a forever constitution
never amended, never questioned
just the foundational agreement that
this handshake cannot be un-shook.
I’d like to have peace for breakfast
and let that be the traditional food
our culture is known for.
When I say our culture I mean
everyone who breathes on this
When I say this spinning rock
why do we always forget
it’s the same one for all of us
despite our disagreements
despite the lines we’ve drawn
despite the different sizes
of our bank accounts.
Let’s meet at the well
everyone of us in this
