Who put the "con" in fusion anyway?
All I long for is a bright, sunny day.
If we really had the sunís fusion,
it would all go away.
So we are running wildly around,
like chickens with our heads cut off.
Trying to make a point or buck,
and keep from being laid off.
Keeping up with the latest thing,
showing off all our stuff and bling.
You can wait for Armageddon,
you can wait for the water to rise.
But it's time that you see the truth,
when it's right before your eyes.
It's time to focus in on all the mess,
it's time to work and not to rest.
We must save this planet from ourselves,
we must save this planet like little elves.
Live in the forest with the creatures as one,
stop plundering our legacy for riches won.
Dumping our problem on the next generation,
fighting stupid wars with veneration.
Grow up and face our real fears,
stop running scared with nothing but tears.
Science is hard, but we must prevail,
in science we trust, in faith we fail.
Man's history is long and it is distinct,
time to stand up or become extinct.

|Make you wonder who the greater species is
we only take and give nothing back. we are in a disposible society
and that goes for relationships also
what a shame man has become
Great message here Ron
Well I have to go now and do some food shopping
Hmmm do i bag it by killing a tree or by using what will never be absorbed back into the earth
Oh hell I'll just have water instead

|Truly we are ruining everything and we have been doing so since the beginning of our time here. I hear a whole lot of complaining about what is wrong here, but it seems that people no longer bother to come up with viable solutions. Through science we may very well be given a much longer life, but I am not certain that I would wish to remain here for that long. Nice write, Ron.

|Ron I wholeheartedly agree with the premise of this poem except of course that I believe it is exactly what Creator wants us to do also;-)! Excellent work!

When a dew of reason falls on the dynamo of brain electric-chemistry strikes, and "Confusion" shows the way... A poetic social and historic grand.
I salute You, Poet.
Long healthy creative life.
