Civilized and advanced modern countries hate each other’s gut and bicker among themselves. Their self centered leaders and political cohorts, their religious eccentrics – together with their vampire like blood hungry warlords : they still have unrefined stone age DNA.
East or West – Polar Bears or Penguins, Black or White, Blue Eyes or Dark Brown Hair – made no difference at all in their overzealous bigotry. Their subjects – the ordinary, expendable people become collateral damage.
Sometime soon someone with a mind bedeviled by the Devil himself would laugh while entering a launch code and pushing a big red button and the strongs would incinerate themselves.
Hell would come and blue sky would be a myth – whispered or rather spoken about ala voice over, immortalized in those blockbuster movies – while gathered around a bonfire.
The meek then shall inherit the scorched earth.
Then we shall all go back to the basics:
‘Hello – my name is Ali – what’s yours? Do you live over there – across the river, beyond those hills? Are you hungry? I have some fruits I have gathered from the shrubs in the badlands…’
Or maybe not.
Maybe we would just clobber the stranger’s head with a stone pebble – or with a thigh bone of our over sophisticated but ignorant ancestor.
Damn – now, where is that Starship USS Enterprise?
I would love to hitch a ride and warp myself to the edge of inter-stellar space – or to any time, any place where people are at peace with themselves.
I would love just to let the breeze caress my weathered face – while listening to the sound of the sea. I would love just to walk barefooted on the white sandy beach and say ‘Hello World’ all day long.
And then all night long – I would love just to lie down on a grassy knoll and stare at the myriads of beautiful twinkling stars and the ugly lonely pockmarked single moon.
Then I would drift into a peaceful sleep and dictate a wonderful dream…
