United Notion

The Nations United as one
What a truly wonderful thought
Freedom from violence under the gun
Heaven on Earth as all scripture has taught

No Nation or anyone man
To be left living in fear
Tyrants and Usurpers under a ban
Peace Love and Joy in everyones’ ear

Equality of the sexes just one guarantee
Poverty and violence a thing of the past
All men women and children to be now free
Slavery and usury a thing of the past

Freedom of thought and religion too
Education for all at no cost
No more dominion by just a few
Subjugation from Empire forever lost

The rights of everyone set in the law
Freedom from prejudice for every race
Never to be barred from any door
The joy of the free on every face

Never again to be trapped by the State
The right to leave one Nation for another
The end of all evil and the end of all hate
All nations and men embracing as brother

So why do we still have poverty and war
How can we make this great notion come true
Is it simply that we have set it in law
To Council the Security in a dominant few

Artist's Description

The United Nations, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is a wonderful document. I hope one day it becomes a Convention, I fail to see why it hasn’t yet.

If you want to upset a Politician, hand them a copy.
