The World is One / Poem by Lily Swarn

Poem by Lily Swarn
 
 
-And the world will live as one
( Beatles)
 
The World is One
 
Your freckled pink skin will blend with
my whipped coffee one
Opaque yellow tints highlight rich ebony hues
Carolina blue eyes play with brandy brown snifters
Champagne flutes of amber warmth lock eyes with black beauties
And the world will live as one
 
Alpine snows bow lovingly towards hairy Tibetan yaks
Kangaroos hop across to nibble at Steppe grasslands green
Tawny eyed snow leopards nudge African tuskers
Dolphins dive deftly with lazily snoozing alligators
Peacocks pirouette alongside red cardinals
And the world will live as one
 
He won’t pull a gun if a man says Astagfirullah instead of Lord forgive me
Mobs won’t lynch me if I wear a sacred mark on my forehead
She won’t murder if her daughter marries a turbaned gent
Strangely any coloured cap will match any style of beard
And the world will live as one
