As Utopia Sleeps

We have taken all anxiety
into our dreams
cruel, unfathomable acts 
lodge into our fascia, as pain

Part of a raging beast, 
oozing out of control
helpless cells, imbued with a wisdom
overcome by cancerous greed.

 We chase frothy bubbles
lose concerns in selfish
pursuits-far be it from us to be
the conduit that delivers peace

Our earth
seen from a moon flight
has a fragile beauty well known to us
Its oceans of miracles, clear water
pure air, be-mucked by enterprise
and murder, murder everywhere.

Silly minds twisted beyond Nature's purity
Dragon's teeth sprouted eons ago
Death hangs over us-the years too brief
Two and fro we leap from history to history
Blood and mayhem and un-numbered griefs.

The world, full of troubles,  as Utopia sleeps
