               I’ve lived my life where civil peace prevails
               And never known war but in the news
               Or movies where such violence boosts sales
               And ultimately all the bad guys lose.

               Is it conceivable that someday hence
               Our race will have evolved beyond resort
               To force, aggressive action and defense,
               All differences being settled in a court?

               First, we must think much better of our race
               And honor what we’re named for: sapience,
               Repenting our long history of disgrace
               While cultivating love as recompense.

                    Our heroes must be models who inspire
                    All souls to do what history will admire.
