Sonnet #104

I'm pro-life, but I'm serious when I say that

I want to end the death penalty, end all war
I want to embrace all refugees, suffering so that
A man in a castle can be fat with power;
I want to end the drilling, end strip mining
I want to recycle, preserve the wild places
Against encroachment, No more polluting
No more decaying plastics, Intelligent races
Never live in fear of the knife and hook
Even the mindmute suffer nothing industrial
And the universe is to be explored, look up! Look!
We should be spreading life to the extra-terrestrial!
I don't think the label works with choice and women
Best make a system that's pro-life, not punish one sin.
