||Poems like this are boring: "what if" questions are basically a waste of time.
||Perhaps so, but isn't also good to remember that the universe isn't as solid as we imagine?
||(nodding) Yep! Our world is a matrix with in which billions of "what ifs" converge into "what seems."
||(yawning) Uh huh . . . well, what if we changed the topic?
What if politicians cared about dis planet
more than their dirty coffers?
What if long term consequences mattered
more than short term gains?
What if democracy
or freedom were
something more than
a slogan during a campaign?
