It might as well be
The question is incorrectly posed as should we
Instead of why don’t we
Send our airplanes, empty, not loaded,
Ready to lift and rescue
Not drop and rend?
On a smaller scale
Why don’t we change so that the bee
And the flower can continue to brighten each day?
A person’s worth depended upon
The god they believe or do not believe
Why don’t we applaud all choices
Instead of only those we agree with?
And if he wishes to hold a man’s hand and place a ring upon it,
Or she chooses to hold a woman’s instead,
Why don’t we smile at the gestures instead
Of forcing the round pegs
Into our square holes?
Why don’t we
Save the coal by leaving it alone
So that future generations might
Do the same?
Why don’t we accept
That someone must make good choices
And it might as well
