IV The New World

“Everything we need is here
We can live without doubt or fear
Do away with wrath and tears

“We’ve discovered a brave new world
Let the banners be unfurled”

This paragon of living
Gave birth to Love and Giving
Everyone was satisfied
With all their lives so unified

They all lived in harmony
Danced and sang triumphantly
All together and free

The sky was blue with cheer and love
As their God watched from above

They worked and played in open fields
And traded samples of their yields
Gorged themselves at every meal
Life on Earth was so ideal

They worshiped trees and hills afar
Gave pleasant names to all the stars
And let go pre-developed scars

But soon the Love had turned to Greed
And the flowers turned to weeds…
