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 ?

Well LOL,,, Walk into the crowd after being MIA then makes those blown away statements and then silence.... he disappears again.

The world and everything in it was created by words and, the breath of the spirit moves these words into being.

I like the fact you wrote here all that is hard to achieve or to think of (that it will be ever possible)... nice contradictions (dreamt of, and written)... to create a better world... it was worth a try definitely!

Thought provoking, and eye opening... made me smile.

When Facebook discovers that friends are real people, then maybe people on Facebook will actually be real friends. . .

Sounds like wishful thinking to me, Leslie, and I wish you a lot of luck with your son and your wife. As far as the rest of the world goes, that's completely in God's hands and I wish us all luck with those situations.
I like your dry sense of humor - made me smile. Good job!

Everything reversed by magic!
Liberal turned to fanatic!
I enjoyed your thoughtful satire.
