Philip Claude Andermann
Our greatest telescopes
Into now-fossils of the past.
Baby mine whose tears make mine, I wish I could peer
Through your eyes into the future
Way into the next century.
I fear seeing fossils, for man has lost his word.
Baby, let us learn one word
Kept at a time,
For only words have made us human
Flesh of dreams,
And only dialogue parts us
From the past
Of procreation without love,
Of long time hollow robots enslaved to empty instincts
Trained only to help
The ultimate fossils.
Baby, just teach me the word Honesty,
And you will learn - a different WORLD.
