no need to change the earth to quicksand

stuck in my own little world of misery

watching the cosmos fall apart

as the small minded people win the wars of culture

who needs the visionaries??

certainly not us!


Fear permeates as the frightened dictate

it’s been going on forever

those who fear differences always win

stuck in their cosy little boxes

sneering at anything that doesn’t make it in


I don’t understand the need

to take apart the lives of others

only to shore up your own point of view

if you stand on solid ground

there is no need to change the earth to quicksand
