It’s time for the real majority
The women to be what they’ve
Always been the great center
The vital force behind it all
Making everything real happen
Just biding time letting the men
Pretend to be in charge of it all
By managing the trivial unto death
While meanwhile who is it out there
Picking the fruit and digging the root
Vegetables such earthy real nutrition
Without which no one can/will survive
Dense food of micro sustenance all
That matters, matter in most potent
Living form hunters only skim the top
Food chain but gatherers glean that
Gathered below they keep talking
Of center when center been there all
Along 2020 Vision Twenty Twenty Vision
