Children of the Millennium Changeover, Number 26


every evolution changeover brings pain and sorrow
growing pangs so to say
time speeds up when a species feels threatened
by extinction, for the human species
they called it “future shock”
now is the future
and the past
turning to salt is only how dry one feels
looking back looking back at
past faulty rationalizations
seeing fully why we do not wish them
in our future
water is the staff of life and all of it is holy
these children of the millennium changeover
give elders comfort as they are able
and their children the freedom
to be children
with loving safety nets
the days of
“Do as you’re told not as I do”
are dead and gone
when coming into this garden
of the children of the millennium changeover
come as a feather or a bird might
