Pattern (song lyrics)

For ten thousand years
since our evolution began
we created genetic blue prints
that are more or less the same.

Our genomes and our chromosomes
do their best to hold the pattern
though every century or so
a feral or a wild one
creates an individual
who defies the given plan.

And when we look for the marker
in our DNA gene tracker
that may allow for global peace making
it’s overwhelmed by war.

So let’s isolate the chromosome
that shows backbone and resilience
that feral wild and principled
but so sadly undervalued
(in fact it’s been quite ridiculed)
can stand up and say No to war.
