One More Conspiracy Theory – Written Wednesday 21st November 2018 (Aged 43)

One More Conspiracy Theory

fell asleep last night
and locked into a world of dreams
made my way through the world today
in a news bulletin of screams
everything they say has changed
can we remain the same?
with our brexit umbrellas
and toxic rain
caught myself thinking
that life is moving fast
what was once the future is now just past
i counted up,
the ways and means
but there is no economic reality
that stalks my fantasy
and of a place,
bathed in compassions and empathy
and education
is not lost to stupid conspiracy theories
