Put Down Your Gun and Marry Me


Put down your gun and marry me
I am Arab
You are Jew
Put down your gun and marry me
You fell in love with my Veil
I fell in love with your Shekel
Put down your gun and marry me
You fell in love with my Traditions
I fell in love with your Music
Put down your gun and marry me
I am your Father's daughter
You are my Father's son
Put down your gun and marry me
Your are of Abraham's
I am same Seed
Put down your gun and marry me
He who created you
Blew same Breath in me
Put down your gun and marry me
I am the Lamb
Your are the Lion
We lie together peacefully
Put down your gun and marry me
I am White, You are Black
I am Hispanic, You are Asian
I am Native American, You are Latino
I am Man, You are Women
I am Man, You are Man
I am Women, You are Women
I am in Transition, you are in Transition
Put down your gun and marry me
You are God's mercy
I am God's grace.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
