I heard someone say
To cure police
and military violence,
we need a NonTrumpian change of culture.
Sometimes revolutionary changes
include conserving feminist elements
of ancient healing cultures;
Intent to reward multicultural inclusion
rather than hanging on to patriarchal
and capitalistic monocultural supremacy–
a culture of exclusion,
and extraction from Earth’s communal nature
Sometimes we need to restore justice
and peace to our own soil
before we are ready to grow
healthy seeds of primal relationship,
into wealthy win/win Paradise.
I have also heard it said,
If you show mercy
to a sociopath,
And if you merely shun
an imperialistic narcissist,
you will only fuel future selfish outrage.
But, I have lived with oppositional defiance
for adolescent megalomania
and know that punishment,
and hatred fuel further sociopathology
Not fertile healing warmth
of transparent and vulnerable attachment,
gratitude for opportunities
to explore win/win polycultural outcomes
and communally wealthy
erupting into global healing
theological experience of grace.
with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
listens by the hour
to a kids song,
“Sharing is caring.
Be kind to everyone.”
But, we train our police,
and our soldiers
and teach our political party
and economic investors
of ecofeminist multicultural truth
The false peace of tolerating mutual win/lose hostility
is a sin of freedom’s omission
to reconnect with EarthBeauty’s greater gracious half.
