Did you hear that Harmony was sold?

Who would believe you could buy Harmony

If I had known

I would have begged, borrowed and stolen

To purchase that pearl of great price

Imagine, a bucolic hamlet

Surrounded by rolling emerald hills

Conciliating Pacific breezes

No discord, hostility or strife allowed

If Harmony were mine

I’d invite the Taliban

Isis, Boko Haram

Hammas, Zionists

Even the Tea Party

Just to give them a break

From their obsession

With sowing seeds of fear and hatred

Maybe they’d harvest tranquility in Harmony

And take some plantings of peace back home
