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
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
