Shaping The World - Poem by JJ Evendon

May I ask a question?
Certainly.
why do you think you were born?
Because of love shared between two people.
Yes – but what else?
To bring them happiness and see me grow.
That's fine – but what else?
Be proud of my achievements.
OK – but what else?
To respect the world as a whole
and leave it better than when I arrived.
But what if that wasn't possible?
It's not just me, we all must try otherwise we all fail.
If you had the power to shape the world, would you?
Yes
What would you do?
I would make it square so all the ignoramuses fall off the edges – thus saving the planet.
