The Vision

May 16, 2019

“You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense each year, trillions of dollars, correct?

Instead — just play with this — if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world — and it would pay for it many times over, not one human being excluded — we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace.”

– Bill Hicks

The Vision

Nobody else

Seems to see

Extricated

From words

Written

By now

Dead men

Just more

Life affirming

Than words

Written by

Less recent

Dead men

Proving the point

May be pointless

Just * “Imagine”

If there was

Actually

No religion

How much better

We’d all get along

Still

Trapped from

Implementing

By the

Hamster wheel of

Consumption

Corruption

Assumption

Entertainment

And greed

Oral ideologies

Transferred to and

From books

To brains

Generation

After generation

No where near

Ending the

Psychotic cycle

Of insanity

.

*Imagine

“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…. Aha-ah…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one”

– John Lennon

.
Would that really be so difficult

Nothing from that song

Is impossibly achievable

Just need to stop buying

Into differing ideologies

Geography and epidermis’s

Because

Underneath it all

It boils down to

Blood and bones

Brains and biology

Riding on a rock

Hurling through the cosmos

At an incalculable speed

Protected only by a thin

Layer of ozone & atmosphere

Plus we are all being timed

Under the same watchful clock

Observed under the camera’s eye

“Our DNA hasn’t changed substantially in 100,000 years. We’re still operating out of the lower brain. The reptilian brain. Fight or flight. Kill or be killed.

Now, we like to think we’ve evolved and advanced because we can build a computer, fly an airplane, travel underwater. We can write a sonnet, paint a painting, compose an opera.

But you know something? We’re barely out of the jungle on this planet. Barely out of the fucking jungle.

What we are is semi-civilized beasts with baseball caps and automatic weapons.

And this civilization of ours that we’re so proud of, this civilization with its so-called civilized behavior, you ever stop and realize how fragile all this is?”

.
– George Carlin

.

Playing pawns as proletariat puppets

In our own misguided game of thrones

Convinced an or any individual can lead

When it is a just a money & power grab

Exercising will of hubris and henchmen

Doing dastardly deeds no divine deity

Would have in their enlightened masters

Playbook, preserving & protecting people

So why not behave like them that we

May too become enlightened masters
