the future

“what are you so worried about?”
“i used my third and final wish to make the genie go back in the bottle but he won’t do it.”
“The genie is not getting back in the bottle?”
“he says he will, but he says i didn’t say when he has to do it, so he won’t do it now.”
“why is that a problem?”
“dude, i’ve unleashed him on the world. this is basically an evil genie we’re talking about. think of the mischief he could get up to.”
“like what?”
“i don’t know. global warming? pandemics? wars breaking out here and there? homeless people? lots of poor people?”
“dude, we’ve got all that already.”
“dude, you’re right! what’s my problem?”

natural colors flitting

the hawk’s wing repaired
it rejoins its mate in flight
i’ll be better soon

the earth holds us tight
i often walk in the woods
quarantined by life

birds display plumage
gorillas pound on their chest
do not jump the queue

nature tells the truth
trust nature to be correct
we invented wrong

begging the question

once in a lifetime
you will experience something
that you experience only
once in a lifetime

this may occur many times
but it is guaranteed to happen
twice
happily once at the beginning
sadly once at the end

fight stronger predators which
includes their own kind

randomly discovered how
war can end it all

water is a world
that heat can evaporate
and make acid rain
