Show of Hands
Despite the differences of skin color
and our cultural upbringings,
we’re more than brothers of Mankind –
Technically, we’re kin.
Go to the mountain
preserved by ice and snow
where the revelation of Ararat’s secret
is available for everyone to know.
For the ark’s existence
proves the global flood story is true
and being our brother’s keeper…
Is still a right thing to do.
Descended from Noah
are the many races of Man;
see our palms have the same tint –
By a show of hands.
