Imagine a world

What's wrong with a world 

Where free movement is free

Where the soil all over is 

Neither for you nor for me 

Where we can move house

To another island altogether 

And not worry about

How to travel wherever 

Is it not fair to say 

The world belongs to all 

Not only just

Those who want it to fall

They destroy our humanity

As they prohibit our freedom

Passport office insanity 

The world is far from Eden 


◄ Mind's own darkness

Problems with the Pedestal ►

Life has never been fair - anywhere and at any time.
We have to make the best of what we have - and enjoy the
hospitality and habits of others when they are offered.
Equality is not on the table - only equality of opportunity.
And even that requires regulation in its most obvious
sense. Great to have the chance to board a plane but
hardly fun if the world and its dog are also trying to board
it. In short, reality demands regulation whatever the
scenario, if the world is to remain an appealing, let alone
an endurable, place to be.
Bon voyage in life!

There are some wonderful ideals and sentiments stated here. It would be great I agree, but sadly not likely to happen
Nice poem

a strong sense of Lennon hangs over your poem ALM and like his song we should all strive for higher goals of equality. Just how possible and achievable that is I couldn't say but I do admire the spirit of this piece. Thanks for posting. Colin.

It's a lovely thought Mousey, but unfortunately tens of millions from the third world want to come to a handful of countries of the developed world - which would swamp us to the point that this country and others would soon become very unattractive places to live.
