You say you want a resolution

Well, I got one

Let's start with nothing at all

No logic, no war, no whiskey or bombs

No atomic gunpowder


Let's resolve:

No religions

No institutions

No rulers or bums

No tornado

No earthquakes or floods


No spitting

No whining

No shit


Let's sit down on the ground

In the sunlight

And play dice

No money

No chairs

Nothing between us


And whoever wins

Is God
