Beyond The Horizon

Yesterday didn't happen.
Tomorrow is but an assumption.
With the future of the world in the hands
of morons armageddon isn't a possibility,
it's a certainty. Why you may ask?
We chose to ignore the Cree Indian proverb:
'You can't eat money'

like what confusius said that he should be buried with his palms open...how we malign our lives and others' too with this habituated eating money!
If I might share the whole Cree saying: 'Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has died will we realise that we can't eat money.' Also this one whose origin is unknown to me: 'We don't inherit the world from our parents, we borrow it from our children.' Your poem is a bald and uncompromising statement which will hopefully make a difference. love, Allie xxxx
