The Starship of Love

 

THE STARSHIP OF LOVE

1. UK

Parliament House scaffolding

In Westminster. Erected fast and efficiently.

Plenty of money and action for politicians’ halls

to  be prettified.

Grenfell Tower – Blackened, ruined shell

Stretching silent, black agony to the skies.

Nothing done.

Victims? Where? No voice for the blackened bones

contorted in agony, clutching phones transmitting love to

family, loved ones, friends as death approached.

Forgotten. Airbrushed to invisibility.

Live victims/survivorsf – shadows in the cupboards.

Shame hidden under silence.

Not in our names.

Time to shine our light:

We are One World. One Family. One Starship of Love

2. America

Dead schoolchildren, teachers shot to pieces,

Money for more guns, none for teachers or

Families shredded by monstrous murders.

Brave survivors betrayed by blood-soaked

Political leaders dancing in the millions of dollars

Donated by the murderous National Rifle Association.

Not in our names.

Time to shine our Light:

We are One World. One Family. One Starship of Love.

3. The World

Suicide bombers in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries.

US drones dropping murder from a distance.

Tortured bodies – babies, children, parents, sisters, brothers,

Aunts, uncles, grandparents: laid out in rows in Syria from the bombs

Of Russia, the US, Turkey, Assad.

Gaza – Palestinian families, starving, water denied, bombs from screaming jets

Funded for Israel by the US armaments machine.

Black men lined up in slave markets in Libya, silent,

Terrified, dreams of freedom shredded.

Not in our Names.

Shine our Light:

We are one world. One family. One Starship of Love.

4. The Flight of The Starship of Love

Not in the name of us lovers: we care, we are not separate.

We dream of our brothers and sisters,

Of humanity united, standing together,

Woven together by the starry web spun by the galactic forces,

dropping like gossamer clouds to imbue us with oneness.

We are not the separate, selfish parts of a fractured world.

We who love, who care, who see ourselves as part of the star song of

Our united humanity,

baby boomers, generation X, millenials

we stand together/united as we

link arms, hearts, souls

To build the Starship of Love,

Hearts enfolding each other into a great march of humanity,

Building long tables of resistance, compassion, love,

equality, tolerance, open arms,

solidarity,

Rising up!

Shining our Light!

WE WILL BE INVINCIBLE!

  1. CC …….. most excellent and well done and so true on top of that.

    It all starts from the inside out.

    Tubularsock when he popped out of the womb took one look around and discovered he’d caught the wrong bus! Damn!

    Thanks for your wonderful work.

  2. TS – Thanks for your lovely comment, so appreciated. There’s a wonderful comedian in Australia who berates people who don’t like where they live, reckons you get a choice before you turn up here so don’t complain wherever you end up. It’s very funny and sarcastic about racist attitudes, sends up Orstraya no end. You’d love it. If I come across it again, I’ll post you a link.
