for Edmund J. Bourne
Some say we humans are too far adrift
And wayward in the setting of our course;
They say it’s time now for a global shift
That reconnects us to our cosmic Source.
The Global Mind must now be realigned
To sow a viable ecology
And human sensibilities refined
To reap a crop without apology.
No longer heedless of the needs of life,
As if enamored with the deeds of death,
We’ll mend contention and we’ll settle strife,
Insanity no more our shibboleth.
The global mind change that’s long overdue
Will come once we’ve attained the cosmic view.
