DECEMBER – Georgiann Carlson

once upon a December night
when reindeer were flying around
and elves were working around the clock
human beings were reset by their makers
creatures who looked just like us but better 
they showed up and added new code
tweaked this and that
opening hearts and minds
to let in a little more light
they erased religions, cruelty and hatred
and added equality and justice
they ended government control and corruption
paying those in office minimum wage
which was to be decided by the people
they took away all of the ISMS 
that caused so much suffering
and reset people to see other species
as teachers instead of food
new thoughts of harmony and peace were added
and the word war was removed from memory
before they left they said this was our last chance
if we screwed up again we would understand the word extinct
up close and personal
and that’s how Tiny Tim learned to walk
and got a train for Christmas

I’m an artist, a writer, a vegetarian, an animal rights activist, and quite a few other things as well. I love books, cats, philosophy, good conversation, Chicago and the arts. So my blog is full of bits and pieces but it’s the bits and pieces that make life interesting to me. You can read more of my writing at Rethinking Life
