Violation of an other's body
From bullets, blades or even a penis
Is cause for the public's pressing disgust
Translating into a must change in course :
The disinterested stir from their rest,
Become uneasy and irritable,
But will distraught bring action onto them ?
Cause and affect stirs in all the living :
"One step for Man, giant leap for Mankind !"
Must formulate meaning beyond mere words.
To endure, Man must denounce violence
In every form, because it is mental.
Travel shows how irrelevant we are,
Space and time collide, long journey's still far.
