Well you may say that I’m a dreamer
But I don’t actually care
I hope the world rots from materialism and hatred to spare
But I’m not the only one
Who has back stabbed nature and poisoned its natural purity
Let’s do it a favor, leave, let it be
I hope someday that you’ll join us
In our realist outlook on how we are sure to all be damned
I know you probably won’t, it’s not how you robots are programmed
And the world will be as one
As soon as we’re all gone
If you can just imagine there’s no heaven, bravo; you’re dead-on

The author's comments:
This poem is a spin-off of John Lennon's famous "Imagine" song. I took the beginning lines of the lyrics and twisted them to fit the reality of our world today.
