Illness, violence, and suicide are robbing us of beauty
the beauty of the earth that we are privileged to behold
the love of life and laughter that should sustain us ’til we’re old
have all been replaced with sorrow, dread, and disdain…
due to the rise of the barbarians!
Resolve to call on the universe for help
and speak the true desires of the noble
relieve the suffering of the moral
honor the ideals of the humane
grant the desires of the selfless
reward the dignity of the intelligent
restore the beauty and wisdom of the sages
unite sisters and brothers everywhere
and let the barbarians be gone.
May they drastically dwindle in numbers
may they sink by the volume of their greed
may they drown in their pool of their imagined self worth
may they vanish in the face of their pettiness
may they anguish in the mirror of truth
may they wither in the field of their pride
Let the barbarians be gone!
Let true righteousness and compassion prevail
human kindness without barbaric judgments
let the rusty balls and chains of dogma disintegrate
to make room for unconditional love – for all.
Dear benevolent Creator and blessed guardians of all that is
We Implore You… Please hear our cry…
Let the barbarians be gone.
