FIFTH COMMANDMENT Poem by Ray Lucero


“Honor thy Father and Mother”
Wise words, for those that heed
Ignored, as brother kills brother
For on the breast of war they feed

For eons women have met dishonor
Their body, men rape and plunder
Power hungry men who will barter
Wives/children, then sit and ponder;

When?

Patriarchal rule of Earth shall cease
Masculine/Feminine balance restored
Warring Nations frame a lasting peace
Retire weapons, of their own accord

Behold!

Mother of men/Mother Earth again revered
No more shall they be abused and domineered
