The Primordial Directive
Buried in us dark and deep.
Untouchable, unknowable never asleep.
Instincts meant for our survival
Now threaten the race and make us rivals.
These genes that have been passed on
We do not think, but act with brawn
Preserve thyself, and thy pool of genes
At all costs, and by any means.
No mixing, pollution or any dilution
Of the pools purity and constant profusion.
The group, the clan, or the tribe,
Must insure, they will survive.
Different color, hue or nation,
Must destroy this abomination!
Kill them with, club and Stone,
Rip with nails, teeth, fists, and bone.
They don’t believe in the God we do.
We are the righteous, moral and true,
We must conquer, with sword and lance
Slash and gash in this bloody dance
They have everything that we lack,
Infidels! It’s ours we will take it back!
Suicide bombers – kill and maim
Women and children - it’s all the same!
They want to destroy us and take our land.
But retaliation is at hand!
Crazy, evil – we are not safe!
Strike back with planes that bomb and strafe.
They have oil we dearly need
Weapons of mass destruction! Heed!
Rockets and missiles we fire at will
In the name of freedom blood we spill
And so it goes from times primeval,
The fear and hate that is so evil.
This need to fight and kill all others,
Leaves so many crying mothers.
Difference need not be so feared,
When children with love and respect are reared.
When rainbow’s colors all hearts fill.
Then peace on earth and to all good will.
