We Can Do

we can do
                no more                 than evolution allows us
        see           no further            than these eyes
            and no telescope or microscope
                                 this truth

       the earth swirls
                    and swaggers –
            drunk on stupidity –
                                      no longer turns
                          on its axis

         was it ever – or
              truly           might     we     take      the      planet
                     with us this time

                             we can be
            as our imagined angels
                                                 would advise –
                   our acts limited
                 by the reality
              of time and environment –
             these natural parameters accepted –
                          we are free –

              we      can     choose                to be wise
                                        to drown ourselves
                    and our planet
                                   in our  absurdly defended
                                                                            archaic    lies.

                                to be –

                 a raging hurricane
                       or nurturing  sweet  rain.
