(originally posted at 100 Peculiarly Useful So-Called Poems)

Humanity! Humanity!
Spiral thru the cosmic sea!
Hues like stones & pottery,
stunning truth & flattery!
Some are drunk
with unearned strength,
unaware of right & wrong;
some are sad & reel from blows
& strive to readjust with song!
More aware than chimpanzee,
ant or star-fish, grass or tree!
Susceptible to vanity,
wrath, & generosity!
Flags & borders, schemes of fools
make your thumbs & minds the tools
of war, instead of victory
over drought, flood, injury!
Humanity! Humanity!
Spiral thru the cosmic sea!
Child & elder, woman, man—
plan, & humbly act your plan!

      Beasts of England, Beasts of Ireland, Beasts of every land and clime, Hearken to my joyful tidings
      Of the Golden future time.Soon or late the day is coming,
      Tyrant Man shall be o’erthrown,
      And the fruitful fields of England
      Shall be trod by beasts alone.Rings shall vanish from our noses,
      And the harness from our back,
      Bit and spur shall rust forever,
      Cruel whips no more shall crack.Riches more than mind can picture,
      Wheat and barley, oats and hay,
      Clover, beans and mangel-wurzels
      Shall be ours upon that day.Bright will shine the fields of England,
      Purer shall its waters be,
      Sweeter yet shall blow its breezes
      On the day that sets us free.For that day we all must labour,
      Though we die before it break;
      Cows and horses, geese and turkeys,
      All must toil for freedom’s sake.Beasts of England, Beasts of Ireland,
      Beasts of every land and clime,
      Hearken well, and spread my tidings
      Of the Golden future time

      beasts of England. Replaced with ~ Obamas anthem.
      Friend of fatherless!
      Fountain of happiness!
      Lord of the swill-bucket!
      Oh, how my soul is on
      Fire when I gaze at thy
      Calm and commanding eye,
      Like the sun in the sky,
      Comrade Napoleon!Thou art the giver of
      All that thy creatures love,
      Full belly twice a day, clean straw to roll upon;
      Every beast big and small
      Sleeps at peace in his stall,
      Thou watchest over all,
      Comrade Napoleon!Had I a sucking-pig,
      Ere he had grown as big
      Even as a pint bottle or as a rolling-pin,
      He should have learned to be
      Faithful and true to thee,
      Yes, his first squeak should be
      “Comrade Napoleon!”
