New World Order I

New World Order I

when love overawed
the brightness took control
little deaths ended
people passed peacefully
the angel of death
only took life
acting as a passing transient
taking souls
onto the peaceful infinite
leaving others without work

new beginnings
were borne out of choice
and not coercion
force was banned
allegiance to “the flag”
burnt, burnt tips of fingers
hoisted the new world
the new new world
before columbus brought syphilis
and colonialism

a return to Pangaea
in a post Pangaea earth
on well respected soil
cared for ocean
where waves don’t spite us
misdemeanours swallowed
and nature nurtures us
and the sun
gives us an extra century or two
where the galaxy pities our end
instead of breathing

a sigh of relief
