Thanks for the Nightmare, Dream Maker


to sleep, to dream, to learn
to learn the divide
between walking and talking

every man’s home is his castle
until the homeless come in hordes
with nothing to lose
and not enough police to enforce

what truly exists
in this material world
that cannot be lost or taken?
what actions might we willfully take
to retain what we deem
we own?

human history is repetitive
with violence begetting violence
to get what we want
by all means possible

who can say this Earth
will not become violent
when treated with such violence
as to destroy Her?

will the final epithet
of the human species read
“They never truly learned
to share.”

you think
The meek will inherit the earth?
It is logical.
It is reasonable.
It is Love.
