Not ‘Cabbages and Kings’ Again

“The time has come,’ the Walrus said,
      To talk of many things…
      Of cabbages — and kings”
Lewis Carroll, The Walrus & the Carpenter

~~*~~

Let us not speak

Of cabbages and kings

One merely green

The other rarely seen

I can’t enjoy this repast, nor

Your consuming celeb trivia

Do look beyond latest trend

All the glitz of social media…

For, there are challenges

Which must be resolved

World problems to solve

Post-haste, without fail

However feasible

Surely not unreasonable…

Something of genius

A genuine plan

Nothing subversive

No, sparkling, creative!

Shall we ponder, dear

Discuss those things?

And pray—if we expect

To continue living.
