The Utopian Tower

Building the mountain

Brick after brick

To try to reach

The endless sky

.

Those who warn against

Tempting fate

Those who want to keep the cruel world

Are thrown off the tower

.

When this project is finished

No more construction need be done

.

It will be a Utopia

Where no one need be homeless

.

The whispers begin then

The ghosts of old worries

Rising from the dust

The dust that those who disagreed fell on

.

The old worries

Are beginning to return

As more people are thrown off

The carefully made bricks

Of the Utopian society

Are beginning to fall

.

Brick by brick

The dream

Shatters upon the Earth

As people rise up

With doubt

And mistrust

Scattering the dust of the dream

That will never become reality
