Unrealistic, Dreamy Views.

The Moon doesn't show 
in the murky skies anymore,
what, 
are the poets' blind?

Or is it a mere way 
to convince oneself,
that all is well, 
and sublime?

A distorted photograph of the world
is being painted before our eyes,

They say, "oh the flowers, so bright!"

- It's a lie, a scam, I tell you!
and just about nothing seems right.

Our world is dying, 
slowly it is; 
I know it sounds pretentious,
but that is the harsh truth.

And we better do something about it, 
we, the "future of the world"
before it's time for death.
