A Better World

A Better World

A Poem by Leslie Philibert

pop poetry


China will be declared part of the Peoples Republic of Tibet ; Somalia will send
food parcels to the Swiss and the Mexicans will build a fence to prevent illegal
immigration from the United States.There will be a Queen in Saudia Arabia and
P***y Riot will be elected to the Duma. The Taliban will build a church in Kabul
and invite the Pope and his wife to open it. Fast food will slow down ; the Israelis
will paint their nuclear weapons gay pink and ship them to Iran , North Korea will
be renamed Happyville.A clown will be named President of the World Bank and
North Africa wll accept refugees from Europe.

Facebook will discover that friends are real people,my sons might understand that
my car needs petrol and my wife will stop buying shoes.

And if you thought that poetry can`t change anything, you are right.
But it`s worth a try, isn`t it ?

I can't stop smiling, loved the gay pink nuke for iran....marvelous pure wit and sharp write, with twist of humor:!

This is great! The juxtapositions or untruths were oddly thrilling. Loved the sons realizing the car needs petrol, having four grown children myself. :) Words can change the world and why not start with a simple wish. Even trying to see these things is a start. I really like it.
