CIrcles and straight lines

Round man sees it all in circles
Circles mixed with wiggly lines
Nothing straight is made by nature
And yet it’s all so good and fine
Straight man only thinks in straight lines
Round man sees the circles, all
He looks at all of Gods creations
He knows, it‘s all so beautiful’.

Circle man he loves the planet
It’s beauty mesmerizes he
Straight man only sees the value
Of everything  that he does see
So he slowly kills our planet
He doesn’t see this through at all
Round man sadly looks at straight man
Thinking of him as a fool

Circle man is filled with sadness
It seeps into his joyful life
He really loves the space he lives in
Yet looks into the straight mans strife
Seeing he is never happy
That all the wanting leads to this
Round man knows that life’s for living
Accepting all the way it is.

    this is quite fascinating. round man vs. Straight man. Does it also have connotations of liberal vs. conservative, or perhaps sexual connotations as well? I could be reading too much into it on that last thing I said. But I am thinking that you mean those with "blinders on" are the straight ones for sure. Very nice job.

    The circle man lives naturally, and believes that one life leads to another. the straight man sees life as a straight line from life to death, and so does not care what happens to the planet at all. Thanks for your comments, they are appreciated
