If Only

by Phoebe

If life were perfect
There would be no prejudice
In an ideal world

Quality living
A global community
In sweet harmony

Enjoying the fruits
from a global harvest of
Universal love

But life's not like that
And the reason why it's not..
We already know!

Ah, love your quartet of ku's ... What one wouldn't give for the true serenity (and good vibes) of "quality living, a global community in sweet harmony" - Sigh, Phoebe... Really well done!
Cheers, Mary Ann

is the selfishness

and greed of the one percent

blind to true fairness

    When we seriously think about it - it's not really such a big ask is it Star? difficult is it for anyone with a functioning brain to be nice to whoever crosses their may pick a hole in my argument and bring up a negative connection that won't be nice back - but negativity has an opposite - I like it much better, there!..Thank you for your comment - much appreciated..Smile - Phoebe
