Sunday Whirl (Wordle #103) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
merge, project, activate, technology, unity, mantra,
smudge, sing, delicious, inquisitive, urge, stellar
We Came With Hope
Found on an unruled quarto sheet,
tied to a brick, in low earth orbit.
We came with hope but found you young,
Not ready to join in.
You need a peaceful unity
Before membership can begin.
The wider stellar network
Urge you work as one:
Be inquisitive, not aggressive,
Is the mantra of the sun.
The warlike pose that you project
Is a smudge upon your card;
All we ask is a civilised stance
And compliance isn’t hard.
To activate you membership
And merge into our ranks
Use technology for the common good
And make wind-chimes from your tanks.
Until the prospect of what we have
Is more delicious than bloodshed,
We’ll leave fighting futile fights,
Singing anthems to your dead.
