thinking time

by damommza & sunovawot

so tell the truth, I want to know
if you could travel, where would you go?
far back in time, when life was new
food and shelter for the lucky few
and every man hoped to survive
to end each day still alive…

or to the future, there to find
life’s got better for humankind
there is no war, there is no pain
everyone’s fed, everyone’s sane
and governments do not exist
all the world is freedom kissed

Who am I kidding? I want to know
we’ll never thrive, we’ll never grow
as we evolve, we regress
we’ve made the world a goddam mess
a few more years, what would they bring?
new ways to bugger everything

so here I’ll sit and whine and groan
for other’s faults, and not my own
a pox on the past, the future too
on everything they say and do
and question why the world can’t be
designed especially for me

    How awesome that a few exchanged thoughts weave themselves so readily in to a poem. As always, you have breathed life into clay.. πŸ˜€

    • If we can get through the next few years without everything collapsing under it’s own weight, somebody someday may get the opportunity to colonise, but, short the development of a relatively cheap faster-than-light drive, the resources needed for such an expedition are far more than most would be willing to pay for no ostensible return 😦 πŸ˜€

        The old “More Month than Money” trickbag, we could get close to light speed but not past it, if they EVER get there we’d be the stuff of stars in very short order with aggressive colonization plans in hand & working over the first of MANY planets!!

        • As I said, I don’t think there is any chance without an accessible FTL drive, and then you have to find Goldilocks planets, ie.in the habitable/liquid water zone, that aren’t already in use (or if you have no qualms, that you can steal without too high a cost)…
          Not tomorrow then πŸ˜€

      I’m glad you liked it and it gave you something to think about, abikertoo. Sun and I were going in opposite directions..which means, I might have ended up being his great, great, great………..great, great grandmother! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        We’ll get there, some scientist in a flash of brilliance will perfect the Ion drive scoop for deep space & light speeds to get there & back in relatively short times.
        We need to “uncrowd the planet while its still possible to do so, 30 years from now people will go to the park to see the five trees there to try & imagine what it was like with whole groves of them!!
