Wouldnt Fill A Thimble! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

Jesus was not a capitalist,
Buddha owned no stocks or bonds...
democracy has nothing to do with invasion.
freedom cant be bought and sold!

the earth is not 'property'...
salvation doesnt imply donation.
equality doesnt have limitations,
respect is a two way street!

much judgement, few qualified judges!
forgiveness has to be given to receive.
wisdom not bound by degrees...
no tomorrow unless we validate today!

love doesnt imply ownership.
and death is not the end!
what we know wouldnt fill a thimble,
what we seek to know already seeks us!
