Only If garbage didn't exist | A H.O.W. Poem contribution

Updated on March 9, 2013

The poem was converted into a spoken word remix, Sound Track Attribution 2.5 Generic: Music by SackJo22 "The Right Voice"

"It takes a strong imagination to wish such things away"

Vacant lots filled with dumpsters

No-longer Staring at them trash cans of DE-motivation

No more men worried about taking the garbage out

No more Landfills loaded with mess anymore

Waste treatment plants no longer serving a purpose

Trash Receptacles of all shapes and sizes vanished from all existence

Organic life forms in the ground can truly thrive again

A once plastic life & culture has come to a swift end

Artificial substances having a zero effect on the environment

Manufactured products all get recycled

The economy now refocused on barter and sharing factors

No more jails or prison cells or factories

To work off your tail

The end to a living hell for so many poor souls

Finally the earth returns to a state of equilibrium and paradise

      @Gypsy Rose Lee, Hey its Rasma

      Oh I wish for a more cleaner world, and for us to be able to turn back the hands of time, maybe to the stone age era LOL. Then we wouldn't have to deal with all this mess anymore, and live happier ever after. The end! Hah!!!

      Thanks @bravewarrior, I agree with you on that premise of the sex offenders, this dream of mine may possibly comes true, then we will need yet another dream to conjure up to rid the planet of them LOL.

      Thanks for that cool comment up there @Lastheart, yes indeed me and my wife just watched an intense documentary about a guy who worked for a super market or some store, and dumped out trash for them to earn a living.

      He then did something amazing, and started using the trash to make art forms, he took picture of it all, and hit the jackpot becoming famous and all. That's just the start of the documentary, I will write about it someday for sure.

      Mike, this is right on! I'm an idealist and this fits right in with my mindset. The only problem with no prisons is the sex offenders and murders are free to roam even if their sentence is to clean up all the trash. They should put themselves in the dumpsters right along with the rest of the garbage that is tainting this earth!

      Garbage everywhere...not only here in Puerto Rico. I guess our environment will be clean in the measure we are clean inside. Lovely share.

      @torrilynn, thank you, I try my hardest to improve on my techniques and approach to putting out useful messages. Thanks to all the online tools we have at our disposal today, and all the new age tech gadgets It's become much easier for sure.

      I will keep on this path, and do much more in due time, and I'm so happy you like my recent poems and spoken word.

      @Rolly A Chabot, thanks Rolly, yes indeed we shall not give up the fight to fix whats been wrongly done to our precious earth, and to all of humanity.

      We shall keep up the good fight and using creativity, strength in numbers and usage of dreams such as this one here in the poem, we shall triumph over such ills.

      @billybuc, Thank my good friend, yes indeed artificial reality has been claiming much of the globe, but our dreams combined shall be the victor in the end I do believe, and even if humanity cares not to do anything about fixing these issues we do have today.

      Some are working hard to correct much of it, but more needs to be done, and thanks to your online movement writers worldwide are joining forces to make similar efforts come to life, and with words of true inspiration. Powerful stuff we got going here Bill, lets get it done!

      Morning CE... well done and yes it would be nice to be rid of it. Over the years we have burned it, attempted to bury it like a cat in a garden and hopefully forget about. It will always be there. Maybe it is time the manufacturing industry stops and considers what it creates and us the consumer what we are buying.

      The small town where I live has taken on the entire issue with a fresh approach. With all the options for recycling I have reduce my garbage down to one small white bag a week. The rest has become a resource as it is composted and reused.

      Very well spoken Cloud...

      Hugs and Blessings from Canada
