Beat of a Different Drum

Submitted by Tomplum

I wish that the beat of the war drum would fall on deaf ears
We can choose to live in isolation from other countries
Shut our borders
Build our goods
Teach our children
Care for our own

I wish that the beat of the war drum would fall on caring ears
Your portfolio and mine need both of us to prosper
Your portfolio and mine need most of us to prosper
Short sell we short ourselves
Teach the world's children
Care for our own

I wish that the drums of war would fall
What if they became drums to draw us together
What if our portfolios were replaced by existence
What if we carried this thought into every negotiation
Every campaign
Learn from the world
Care for us all
