A Thought for Peace, written for Maggie Hubbard

A Thought for Peace

The Doomsday Clock is set to 11:57.
Someone has parked too close to Fred's Corvette.
Kitten videos are trending.
Winds in Chicago are blowing baby ducks around.

It’s too late to stop global warming.
We stand on the precipice of ignorance.
The world has never been safe.
Power, greed and avarice rule.

But humanitarians speak out and are heard.
The heart of the small child is abundant love.
Power resides in the cry of a newborn.
“Art in an avenue for truth.*”
