Planetary handbrake

Nothing to be thought,

Nothing to be said,

As I lie completely at rest,

In the present moment’s nest,

The abolition of ambition,

Except to acquire nutrition,

Water and shelter –

a worthy addition,

Hands and hearts embraced,

Do we really require more from this place?

Our culture has us twisted and turned,

Materialism got locked us in a prism,

Capitalism, and communism,

Unable to satiate our biochemical mechanism,

Should we not live off of the land?

Was this evolution not a mistake?

How far from nature, self and other,

Mother nature burning at the stake,

Our society needs to apply,

The planetary emergency handbrake.
