Rosy Days A Coming
A poem by Michael Hawkes
November 20, 2023
Some friends, by reading science fiction
Prepare for rosy days ahead.
There is nothing in their fond depictions
For any future folks to dread.
All the latest modern trends
Developed to the Nth degree
Will bring a life of dividends
With leisure and security
And underneath the whole shebang
A scientific guarantee.
Strange adaptions will be rife
With mind and body modifications,
For our successful future life
May need utopian ideations.
And then, to match their expectations
Will surely take a few mutations,
A few of which are major needs…
Geneticists are on the job,
In their labs, in concentration,
Working out some future breeds.
So, don’t worry, it’s gonna work out,
Be here now, be done with doubt.
Ignore those pessi\realists,
Forgive their passive smirking,
There’s nothing real to worry about
If your p.c. is plugged ’n working.
