The Daily Inkling prompt is to imagine a future with a tech device that we think of as impossible. I can’t get my head around technology, so here’s a future without it.
I have a dream (don’t we all?),
they call an impossible dream,
of a future cleansed of obscurantism,
when we will believe in ourselves,
and ourselves alone,
when we shoulder our responsibilities
to the here and now,
and scrape away the putrid sacred vestments
that have befouled our humanity.
Ni dieu, ni maître,
The stars wheeling above my head,
the sands of a long white strand beneath my feet,
I take my place in the universe.
I have a dream,
only a dream.
