Avoidable Fate

Double-dealing men
burst their own bubble
in wars and pollution,
except when intellect
governs macho instinct,
a democratic solution.
Instead the opposite
keeps everyone forever
trapped in deep trouble
while Earth goes extinct
under tons of toxic rubble.

Still there's time to agree
to teach boys the art
and wise philosophy
of thinking from the heart,
though many may stumble,
they can all learn to be
both loving and smart,
both reponsible and free,
and sincerely humble.
