Imagine a world
...where passion reigned
and Discipline had long since been exposed -
a disgraced antihero.

...whereupon the throne
sat the Queen of Decadence and the King of Desire,
who shared a particular penchant
for singing, bawdily.

...where the subjects cowtowed
not to rules, but whims,
where work was a pleasurable pastime
and siestas mandatory.

Imagine further this world...
in which the mind, body, soul
coexisted in equanimity
and it was categorically confirmed
that people didn't die
but simply transitioned
to the next step.

Further still...
a kingdom of united politicians,
organised religion, forbidden,
the many and varied holograms of fear,
long since defeated
and thought and language synonymous -
exposing the traitors, embracing the heroes.

Imagine. Powerfully.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up............Warmly thought and warmly put.



PS - think you've done a 'whereupon' in stead of a 'where, upon'!!

this reads like a prayer for the spirtual.

It is stong direct language.

and "powerful'

the use of im agine makes it seem possible, aas though it is there already in a nother place and we just have to reach out and touch it...maybe maybe...

x Laura.
