What if? (pt.2)


What if there was no money?
would there still be greed?
what if there was no hunger?
would there still be poverty?

what if there was no religion?
would there still be questions
about the existence
and significance of the universe?
would there be answers
to such questions?
what answers?

what if there was no truth?
would there be lies?
what if there was no lie?
would you [have] bother[ed]
to tell the truth?

what if there was no rain?
what if there was no brain?
what if there was no pain?
what if there was no name?
what if there was no claim
to verify or nullify
whatever the blame
on who[mso]ever?

what if there was no pen?
would i learn?
would i write on my hand?
would there still be ink?
would there be paper?
what if there was no ink?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
