Once Upon A Time
(Dedicated to a world where common sense prevails towards economic, scientific, political, and scholarly goals –

Once upon a time –
Humans were scattered in open countryside!
Cities were small blended side by side -
Maintaining charm, art, and cultural pride
Everyone enjoyed fresh air and sunshine!
Grandparents knew all about food-health needs
Parents learnt to care for a family big!
Neighbour helped delivering babies without notice
Raising child was community events not expensive worries!
Food was always organic without pesticides!
Everyone was safe not knowing homicide!
News was more than advertisement, felony, and crimes!
Commons knew moderation meant healthy life!
Police were peacekeepers without gun
High rise buildings didn’t block sun!
People confessed to priests and nuns
For sincere corrections without jail terms!
Gasoline, processed snacks, and carbonated drinks
Were not the main economic engine!
Military, health care, prison, porn industry
Were not in perception even as alien mystery!
People used to greet each other way to market
Where they met local farmers displaying baskets
Fresh flowers, produce, grains, and animals
Exchanged hands from their loving children!
Fruits and vegetables were sold in dozens or basket
Price didn’t weigh inedible stems or branches!
People could eat vegetable skins for nourishment
Fresh fruits without smell of chemical and waxes!
Children used to look beautiful in school uniform
School yard was not meant for display of fashion!
Innocence and adolescence enjoyed learning with fun
No one could think ever a student with a gun!
War among countries had laws even scheduled time
Forbidding barbaric attack on civilians at night!
Politicians knew the meaning of speaking under oath
Military meant for defending own country
Not to hurt others beyond border for Supremacy!
Patriot meant one’s love and respect for the land
Not who sent soldiers beyond border for invasion!
Jesus meant love, neighbourly, and friendliness
[Even in Ancient World, War had rules and ethics! How civilized USA, British, Israeli Tax Payers ended up producing military leaders and advisers who just want to kill and destroy anytime anywhere with least respect to international rules and regulations ignoring civilian sufferings in distant land(s)? Question is why they do it? Is it because they claim them as other kind/first race? World needs to address this for peace and harmony in 21st Century … ! Kolki]

Evangelism led to colonialism and domination dividing people leading to endless fortified borders around the world guarding ideology and religion! As the world tries to shed differences and live as democratic United Nations (UN) expansion of Monarchial NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) is UN’s destruction! World must act united against Super Power Alliance acting like a rogue country possessing most weapons of mass destruction (WMD)! Kolki
