Humanity's Puppeteer

In last night’s dream I found
One million strings
Holding up things
And to my hands they were bound

So suddenly I became
The head puppeteer
For the new year
Although each thread looked the same

Which meant every decision
On our whole globe
Was mine to probe
But I lacked moral vision

Plus my weak hands loved to shake
As the world stood still
Until I found the will
And that one string I did take

Then one more, then another
‘Til I held many
Yet still loathed any
Of which stress made me shudder

As the burden was too much
And every string crossed
Soon all would be lost
In a world that I did clutch

And then many wars began
Plus storms and flooding
For strings were tugging
So I let them go, and ran

I then woke in a cold sweat
Yet was so relieved
And now remained pleased
As a simple old puppet

For John's Puppet contest

    Loved your poem, felt that I could identify with it. Just wish I could cut the strings that hold me.
