Healthy Democracy

Democratically effective governance
of people
plants
places
and planets
cannot begin with degenerative violence
without ending as militant predation,

Which does not sound like healthy
trusting
and cooperative co-invested democracy
even to a child
familiar with playground bullies.

Rather than roots in “retributive justice”
revenge
punishment
religiously licit order,
healthy democracy stems from restorative win/win peace,
multicultural nature spirits
and bio-systemic sacred wisdom,

At least interdependent wisdom enough
to avoid militaristic patriarchal predation
and pollution
of all that Earth holds sacred.
