Did you laugh at WaterWorld..?

By Ch'erie


Did you laugh at Water World,
thought Costner was a creep
I tell you it's no joking matter
as our shorelines do deplete

He may of been quite fanciful
a mutant without a heart
but we're drinking recyled effulent
that is just a start...

Desalination is our cue
built by the year 2525
pardon me for this clich'e
"if Man is still alive"

Penquins they are choking
Polar bears drown and drift away
we are on the Titanic's deck
going down as the band continues to play..

At what point does Man wake up
When the final curtain falls?
or do we just keep our ipods in
live within fantasies walls

I suppose it's individual choice
shut it out, or let it in..

We can sneer as they did at Noah
Till the rains fall, wiping off that grin...

Cheery Pie as always you speak with wisdom, insight and still manage to not be condescending instead...letting the readers judge for themselves the validity of your words.

I never laughed at waterworld-actually I liked the movie tho the idea of a world in trouble is as old as time but for those of us who know how it will end(Revelation 21, 22) we know that despite our faults and the words we either write or use in our daily lives, we all like the old Larry Norman song
" I think we all should get ready"-lovely thoughts-Bless you

I went through years of school showing up at the very last moment. It's so easy to say, "We still have 500 years to do it. But really, starting now to prepare for salt free water system would seem a simple task, and we should count the numbers, the people, the animals, the plants who all need minerals in their water, but remembering the awful and undrinkable amounts of salt.

When you think about it, this is scary but so true. I didn't think anyone remembered that song from Zaeger and Evans!

If you stop to think about it there isn't much we cqn do...that is if you are a believer and have prepared yourself for the next world
by living according to Creator's plan. Which I pray all will be sensible enough to do;-) Excellent poem Che'rie

Lest we forget those millions of lives sacrificed at the altar of abortion, the worst crime this world has ever seen, and we are as silent as those dead babies.

A powerful write my friend, you place the reader there especially with the line about being on the Titanics deck, and so much truth within the lines about shutting out or letting in! You've nailed this one! Well done a wise write with clear insight!

At what point does Man wake up
When the final curtain falls?

I used to wake up every day, filled with hope that mankind would finally 'wake up.' But I've seen far too many horrors in the last several years, that very few seem to care much about at all.

So these days, I've truly lost hope than mankind will finally 'wake up.' Now, I just try to enjoy my time left, and revel in nature wherever I can find it.

And although Waterworld was a little cheesy, I still watch it all the time, as I do Costner's also cheesy, but perhaps, prophetic - The Postman.

Didn't see the movie, Chezza, but know man is determined to kill off everything around him - the plants, the animals, the air, the water - guess he wants a lonely existance, with only the dust he came from as company. Sad - God must be so disappointed in us - for what we've done to His creation -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
