Let us escape this hothouse of worlds
Within worlds and ideas in a nutshell;
This brainstorming, barnstorming
Rats’ nest of noisy
Let us escape to another universe
Where time runs fast with reference to eternity;
Where summer winds are at least
Ten degrees cooler on the average
And blizzards turn gently to slush.
Nothing will require concentration.
Everything will be made simple.
Mathematics will be made simple.
Reading will be made simple.
Most communication will be by radio and T.V.
And the rest by magazines using large print
And a basic 500 word vocabulary.
People will be made simple.
No one will argue about anything.
It will be impossible to be wrong about anything,
Because the difference between wrong and right
Will be relative and subjective
And will change from time to time.
Basic questionnaires will be made simple.
Income tax returns will be made simple.
There will be time to think everything over
Before we have to decide.
There will be time to do everything over
If it turns out we made the wrong decision.
And in case we decide not to decide anything at all,
There will be plenty of time to procrastinate to our
Before things start falling apart.
Thinking will be made simple.
No one will have to do hard
Manual labor except when
Golfing, playing baseball, fishing, hunting,
Puttering around the house
Or making love.
Labor relations will be made simple.
Everyone will have advantages over everyone else,
The better to compete.
Everyone will have a basic right to lord it over everyone else.
Enforced by the government.
Politics will be made simple.
Let us go there, you and I.
I think we can get there by car,
In half a day, if we start early.
But let us wait
Until Sunday, so that we can spend
Part of the weekend at home,
And get to the office
On Monday morning.
