Strange New World

How things have changed! 
The old verities no longer apply 
Our world has evolved 
and we must adapt
Electricity connects the whole planer 
One can get in touch with people in almost all lands 
within seconds
The internet reaches around the globe 
The "information highway" makes for a smaller world 
A world we may well leave soon in space vehicles 
Space travel will change from
the province of a few individuals 
to the province of billions of Earth dwellers 
We are making the earth 
unsuitable for habitation 
We must change or be destroyed 
by forces of our own making 
We may be forced to leave Spaceship Earth
in order for our species to survive!

    Yes, like "brave new world" too. You would have to be brave to endure all that strangeness. Good one thinking on the future of the planet.

    Looking quite a ways forward, but surely the time will come. Good to hear from you Matthew, Love, daver

    " Spaceship Earth " is so apt, and She's been christened by the Firmament too! Don't worry Matthew, the Earth will destroy our destructive ways first, it always does. You are correct, we must own the consequences of our actions, and hope Providence will inspire us to noble sacrafice. Thanks for the crucial admonishment. J.A.B.

    Cool to be first to comment on this EPCOT voyage! Many hard truths line this chapter of your cosmic poetry. "Mother Earth indeed needs to be respected, been far too long that she's been neglected, race against race, what a goodness grace. it's like cuttin' off yir' nose ta' spite your face"-adam yauch---PeAce and enlightening poem sir.7Rate!~A-Ok All Day!~!~
