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.
