A Joyous Winter Solstice To All!

Io’ Saturnalia – Day 5



If only today was truly the End of the World as we know it.

If only today things changed.

If only today sectarian and non-sectarian violence ended.

If only today religions’ started practicing what the best of them preached.

If only today violence against men, women, children, and animals stopped cold.

If only today humans began to value and protect the Earth, and all its inhabitants as they should.

If only today the arrogance and hubris of humankind ended.

If only today the malignant strong lost their hold on this World, and the benign strong gained control.

If only today wars stopped.

If only today bigotry, intolerance, hatred, and murder came to an end, and instead friendship and intelligent compromise reigned supreme.

If only today all the dictators dropped dead in their tracks.

If only today the oligarchy, as a group, found their souls and became HUMANE beings.

If only today was truly the End of the World as we know it.

Perhaps then we would stand a chance…
