LP (6th March 1954 / London, England)

A Better World

China will be declared part of the Peoples Republic of Tibet;
Somalia will send food parcels to the Swiss and the Mexicans will build
a fence to prevent illegal immigration from the United States. There
will be a Queen in Saudi-Arabia and Pussy Riot will be elected to
the Duma. The Taliban will build a church in Kabul and invite the Pope
and his wife to open it. Fast food will slow down, the Israelis will
paint their nuclear weapons gay pink and ship them to Iran.
North Korea will be renamed Happyville.North Africa will accept refugees
from Europe and a clown will become President of the World Bank.
All children will get the right to vote.

Facebook will discover that friends are real people, my sons might understand that my car needs petrol, and my wife might even stop
buying shoes.

And if you thought that poetry can`t change anything, you are right.
But it`s worth a try, isn`t it?

It's worth a try! Thanks for sharing.
Verily, an outstanding and profound write, If such thing happens there will be no need, to pray God for heaven, for the earth will be a heaven, and all people superior than Angels. The poet's imagination shows a great depth of wisdom. Loved reading and commenting...........10

Witty and very wise! If only to take a peak, your poem's worth a gem, one, more than big a giant! True, that would be indeed the better world. I really love this poem may I have it on my faves? Thank you!
