Not knowing that we’ve

been living in Paradise, fools

(that includes all of mankind)

have been frolicking here

since our first breath of life.

Hard to believe?  Look around.

We’re everywhere.  Since we’ve

created this mess, we’re obligated

to co-exist with our own species!

Unless you’re an astronaut,

Earth is the only place

  available to earthlings.

So, the “civilized” has no alternative 

than to try to share this place

with anybody and everybody.

There’s nothing avaliable on Venus. 

So don’t buy tickets.  Venus might

be a mythical love goddess, but

that doesn’t mean she has

condos to let.  Somehow, we

all must cope with our menacing

nightmares and heartaches.

To name a few:  war. greed.

 street violence, the polluted

 atmosphere, water shortage,

an anemic ecosystem, hunger,

 disease, enviromental apathy,

You name it.  We’ve got it.

We are living in the midst

of a  human tragedy of

our own making.  But don’t

give up.  Hope for our society

is just over the disappearing

horizon.    Think positive.

But don’t blink.  Challenge is

 what makes our survival as

individuals so electrifyingly

eloquent.  Without the need

to serve our material comforts

first, human existence wouldn’t

be so profusely screwed up.

No matter how trivial or

ridiculous, life on our

Planet must be taken at

least somewhat seriously.

So live and weep, citizens.

Live and weep and try to

enjoy this brief journey.

There’re billions of us

scurrying around on this

 over-populated merry-

go-roundFace it:  Nobody

lives forever.  Rather than  make

the worst of it, build a 

 perspective.  Get pissed at

the self-serving  corporations

that dominate Wall Street,    Then

try scrutinizing the predicament

we’ve  got ourselves into

right here in Paradise.

Ain’t life a hoot?
