I dreamed I saw the world in ruins,
Brought down to its knees,
Creatures dying, people crying;
A new reality.
I dreamed I saw the smoke clouds rising
From what remained of the trees,
Politicians lying, exploiters buying;
It was a dream, only a dream
Of what will come to be.
So terrifying, mind defying;
It seemed we were at the crossroads
With clear choices to be made;
To carry on, or admit we’re wrong:
More than mere money.
Opher – 19.4.2020
Homage to Neil Young.
It’s a nightmare about the future if we allow the capitalists to continue their mad pursuit of profit.
The trees all gone. The animals killed. The air and water full of chemicals.
The poor exploited and impoverished and a tiny elite still living like lords – safe in their little air-purified bubbles.
It’s a dream that’s coming true. Nature is worth much more than money.
