Brave New World - Poem by Edith Oram

To live out one's life in peace,
To go with the flow.
Wars and injustice forever to cease,
Love and respect to be on the increase,
To live out one's life in peace.
Work and leisure in perfect balance,
To find out who shot Liberty Valance,
To go with the flow.
Favourite films to be there on tap,
No twenty four - seven - three six five trap,
To live out one's life in peace.
Pleasure parks handy and safe to go,
Beach, golden yellow, sea, blue don't you know,
To go with the flow.
Climate to order, weather men chill,
Not yet awhile? Well I'll just dream until,
To live out one's life in peace,
To go with the flow.

    We dream of Utopia to have it all around
    But if we search, we find it inside in full
    No need going out groping for the nill
    Very good work Sir

    lovely sentiment Edith, it is a state of mind - and you are halfway there already - in your creative mind.
