In Paragonia, we’ve transcended war,
And every sort of violence we abhor,
Since kindness is our ruling principle,
The only way to live a life that’s full.

Most say it’s human nature to compete:
“Survival of the fittest!” they repeat;
Yet even Darwin in his later years
Found that cooperative behavior clears
Us of the imperative to dominate:
Compassion being the antidote to hate.

Let Paragonia be a tool we use,
A whetstone sharpening minds that then may choose
The saner way that wisdom recommends:
A love that fear and rivalry transcends.
