Peaceify

x

I should pray for love

I’ll pray for peace

I should pray for faith

But I’ll take respect

To keep the world

From exploding

x

There are molecules

Of everything

In everything

We do our best to clean

The rest is undiffused

Or do I mean

Defused

x

There is you in me

And as naturally

Me in you

We have each other

And the answer

To my sibling’s keep

Is yes

x

I’ll butter your bread

You’ll butter mine

We will nosh

Then later sit down

For a meal

x

This is better than

Negotiation

We can assure

That each one has

What each one has

Better than

Mizpah

x

May the Lord watch

Between me and thee

While we are absent

One from another

Mizpah, church fashion

x

Nothing is better

For thee than me

Quaker Oats version

x

I’ve heard

Golda Meir made deals

In her kitchen

Over bread

I hope it’s true

But we can make it true

x

If adversaries sit

In homely comfort

Come to my country

I’ll come to yours

Sit with me
