What if? (pt.4)

What if there was no distance?
would there still be speed?
what if there was no sex?
would there still be aids?
what if there was no fear?
would there still be tears?
what if there was no science?
would there still be nuclear?
what if there was no space?
would you still be near?

what if there was no wrong?
what if there was no song?
what if there was no sun?
would there still be moon?
what if there was no one?
would there still be some, soon?
what if there was no sky?
would there still be stars?
what if there was no land?
where would you lay your head?
what if there was no hand?
would you still grip as dead?

what if there were no clothes?
would there still be nakedness?
would there still be rape?
would there still be need to crave?
what if there was no insult?
would there still be privacy?
what if there was no sickness?
would there still be weakness?
what if there was no comfort?
would there still be gone thoughts?

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
