I Am A Utopian

Life can be a struggle at the best of times, with doom and gloom written in many expressions,
And some of these people drag their feet as they move through their ‘sorry’ existence,
And they can stare into space with a measured pace of thoughtful suppressions,
As affluent, hierarchy technocrats ply their trade of capitalistic sense.

We share a ‘little’, and starve a ‘lot’, as many in our world go hungry,
And poverty strives on and on, and so very often without a second thought,
But when you have experienced ‘suffering’, this can influence some prosperity
Of intellectual giving, as sometimes ‘awareness’ is a source of sharing a mindful ought.

A lot of the rich stay ‘rich’, and a lot of the poor stay ‘poor’, which is widely evidenced,
But is this factor commonly addressed by western politicians – a little from a lot,
And while this situation and circumstance persists, our voices are silenced,
As the lower classes are recompensed with a ‘little’ from a ‘large’ pot.

With so much ‘giving‘, and so much ‘taking‘, comes forsaking aching,
As to handout a ‘lot’ from a ‘little’, and to receive a poor lifestyle quality
In return, is a discerning discontent, which can turn into resentment, relating
To those above us lapping up a life of luxury, while those lesser watch on enviously.

In stanza four,  ' a lot from a little', is expressing that a lot of governments are in debt to other countries.

This poem speaks for itself, and as a ‘Utopian’, I believe in trying to influence ‘heaven on earth’. We have the man/woman power, resources and technology, etc. to create ‘Utopia’, but there is seemingly little mention of this in our day to day lives.

Here is one of my Utopian philosophies: Porsches and Ferraris, etc., are but metal, plastic, rubber, glass and leather, so why can’t everyone have one!

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.


  1. Hopefully some day humans will smarten up and create utopia at last. Pretty sure it won't be in my lifetime though, LOL! Thanks for popping by my blog today, Andrew.

    1. Let's hope it happens one day, perhaps after peace on earth!

      Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.
