The Kingdom in Two

by thefoxdraws

I long for the day
My children can see
Not unity, but peace.

Earth, ancient, moaning and groaning
Beneath our busy feet
Has never been just One.

Nature, a cycle, weaving and teasing
Around our eager minds
Will never be just One.

And one small human, young, heading and treading
A mighty expedition
Through the ancient Earth
Around the cycling Nature
Thinks he trumps all of history.

Yes, to be One would be
Lovely, certainly
The Solution.

But the moaning Earth
And weaving Nature
Crave a little
Disagreement –
All while working just fine.
