All this talk of war is making me melancholy.
The puffed up cockerels stand on their mounds, fluff out their feathers and crow about mighty weapons. “Make my day Punk” voices, punctuate the tense atmosphere.
North, South, Red, Blue, Right, Wrong, Christianity, Islam – creeping anarchy?
It’s time to stop the silly crap
And seal up the dark
In Plastic Wrap
I wonder if we would still find time to threaten each other with annihilation, if an asteroid headed this way, threatened the same. Ironic that an external threat to destroy, would probably have us tearing down the walls that separate us, in order to cooperate, to save the planet.
Without the asteroid – business as usual -BANG! Seems like a “slow threat”, is not really taken seriously – climate change for example. The old adage of the frog not jumping from the slowly heated water, seems to be true for us too.
Surely we are smarter than this? I dream of raised awareness and an awakening humanity.
