By
   As I wandered down the street

Where some friends of mine agreed to meet.

A shining door caught my eye

And when I entered time flew by.



I found myself in the year 2112

And to my great distress

Found the world in shambles.



Pollution had overcome the earth

Most animals had died and many plants too

The smog was so thick I could not see

And a crowd was screaming in front of me.



The world had fallen to radioactive waste.

People had stopped thinking of color and race.

And I thought to myself

Was this what it would take

To stop the bigotry and the hate?



Then suddenly I was home

The shining portal gone

And down the street I walked again

With my thoughts I wandered on.
