IS WEALTH DEAD?

 

Like a blast of hot air

We are presented with scientific

Predictions of

Pending destructions of large

Areas of our

World Ecological

Systems.

 

We are told

No possible correction for

Forty years

What are those corrections?

Unknown!

 

What is certain?

Pending destruction?

What is uncertain?

The Solution!

 

Is it prudent to ask

‘IS WEALTH DEAD?’

Has ‘global warming’

Exposed the futility of

Wealth hording by

Individuals and Corporate

Concerns?

 

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Military invasions and

Conquest by

Big nations of

Small nations?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Humanity’s Disunity?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Operation “War on Terror”?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disaster render futile

A vision  and aspiration of

One World Religion and

Associated theological dominance?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Cult of personalities and

The celebrity syndrome?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Racism and individual

Supremacist, xenophobic,

Homophobic, tribal,

Religious, class,

Gender, political,

Sectarian,

Intolerances and practices?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Unfair world trading agreements

Imposed on small and

Poor nations by

Big and rich nations?

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Rich nations’ continued

Demands from Poor nations

Crippling and stifling

Interest payments.

Demands by now which

Should have been made redundant.

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Corporate and individual

Greed and selfishness?

 

 

IS WEALTH DEAD?

 

Is it futile to obsessively

fixate on the latest fashion?

The latest gadgets?

 

Will we refuse excess packaging?

Will we fly less?

Will we share our cars?

Will we consume less?

Will we strive to become private

Car owners?

 

Is owing cars for private uses

Our personal indicators of

Social status and material success?

 

 

Will we industrialise responsibly?

 

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

Our wish to consume more?

Will it be business as usual?

Does it matter to us?

Are we concern?

 

Are the predictions of reduced crop yields,

Shortage of food and drinking water,

Unbearable heat and routine

Lowland flooding

Killing millions

Any concern to us?

 

Have we sufficient concerns to

Make futile our gluttonous and

Obese behaviours?

 

IS WEALTH DEAD?

Or has

Greed got new

Life?

 

Will mass leisure and entertainment

Continue to be used as mind diverters from

Scientific predicted and

Associated disaster likely to result by

The increase in temperatures of

Our Planet?

 

Will the ‘top 100 best seen films/videos,

Best read books, most bought music CDs,

Fastest high-end sport cars,

Most popular designer clothes

Next million in our

Bank accounts,

The next phase of our corporate

Multi-national global expansion and

The hostile/friendly takeover of

The next company,’ continue to take

Precedence over individual and

Collective actions needed to

 Divert predicted disasters.

 

Did we not hear

The Heart Beats of

Mother Earth?

Did we not know that

She was a Living Entity

Who gives and sustains life?

 

We are damaging her Eco systems

How will we sustain life?

 

Is there a way out?

Maybe we can keep

Greed in place and rely on

Our Space adventure.

 

We can be conquers again.

We can begin to tame untamed Space.

We can enter distant moons and planets.

We can bring the natives to their knees.

We can enslave them.

We can command them to

Mine our minerals.

 

WEALTH IS NOT DEAD!

Said the keen and fearless adventurers

Earth’s ice caps may be melting

Carbon dioxide may be altering Earth’s climate,

Eventually the entire Planet may be affected.

Many millions may die.

 

But we need not be among the many

Our Space journeys are planned.

We have tickets to ride.

 

We can start again

In Space

Free of pollutions

We can select

The perfect human race.

 

Our Space ventures will

Carry on a glorious tradition of

Human adventures into

The unknown and survive.

Conquered primitives and

Built great cities.

 

Christopher Columbus,

Earth’s fifteen century

Pioneer extraordinary

Sailed and ventured into

The unknown

Carrying ‘hope’ as his guide

He was rewarded with

The discovery of

The New World

We must put behind us

The pending destructions of

Planet Earth.

 

We need three Earths to sustain

The consumption rate of current

World population.

Can man build planets?

 

We must go

We are the few

The elites.

 

We will build a perfect race

We can and we will.

 

We are equipped with

Our sperm banks

Selected for the purpose

We will keep alive

The human species in Space

We have the technology to

 Achieve our objectives.

 

We are equipped with

 Vast libraries of eugenic

Theories and practices

We will rule

Our new environment.

 

We will have wealth.

un-imaginable wealth!

 

Has global warming and

Associated scientific predicted

Disasters render futile

The elitism and confusions of

Some members of

The Human Race ?

 

How will Humanity distribute

Finite resources?

Will mass expenditures go to

Saving Planet Earth or to

Adventuring into our

Solar System to find

Suitable human settlements for

The few?

 

We need three Earths to sustain

The consumption rate of current

World population.

 

Can man build planets?

Is it futile to try and

Save our Planet?
