My ABCEDARIUS Dream
An addiction to nature a hope for peace
Belligerent people be gone, or just cease
Calls for war, and hate to forever refrain
Discrimination, not heard of, ever again.
Excel, let us all, in being exceedingly good
Feel, empathy for all the misunderstood.
Gregarious by nature we’ve always been
High-rise to bungalows the modern day scene.
Independent’s, there will be many of that ilk
Jostling with nature to produce veg and milk
Keeping livestock for pleasure, and yes meat.
Life, ours, and many more, nurtured by farmers
Much of life depends on these likeable charmers
Not forgetting there are those in most cities
Ordinary, extraordinary, many incredibly witty.
Practitioners, as in Doctors, Scientists, too.
Quintessential to all, so we can carry on through
Reassured, by our Deities, no need for despair.
Success now guaranteed, now that we all care.
To keep peace forever in ourselves we must trust
Understand that all life before, was, for all unjust
Victory now, meaningful, no fighting, no wars
Wickedness banished, no unjustified laws
Xenodochial traits must now be our future
Yes, applicable to all, for were now a new culture.
Zap wow, what was that, my alarm, my dream at an end.
