Change

Here’s to the dubs
Here’s to the fails
Here’s to the anchors
And to the sails…
A word of mine
For this world of us
A simple algorithm
To never-ending fuss…
CHANGE
For the trees
And their mountains
From volcanoes
To better man thou sane…
CHANGE
For the animals
And their lands
From earthquake
To fairy wands…
CHANGE
For the fishes
And their oceans
From tsunami
To spring seasons…
CHANGE
For the birds
And their skies
From smoke
To clear sunrise…
CHANGE
For the humans
And this earth
From this beast, you turned
To humanity that’s worth…
CHANGE
This caste, creed, and races
This class, countries, and religions
This urbanization and civilisations
This power, desire and dollar’s faces…
Because, the man in the man I watch today
Has long vanished from this race…
Because in the search for infinity
We forget that zero has still been the base…
Because the so-called civilians we developed into
Have rather less numbers of days…
Because with these unchanged changes
Only catastrophe seems dooms way…
So CHANGE…
