The Sky ©

William Carolan
Luton, England

The sky pulled her starry blanket o'er her head
and fell asleep to dream of what she saw while awake;

Of people ill because they looked at food,
and others ill as there was no food to look at;

Of people whose belief was love each other,
feeling no sorrow at taking the life of another;

Of people dying because they had nought to eat,
while others dying because they ate too much.

So glad she is to open her eyes,
throw off her starry blanket at sunrise;

Hoping that the day will bring
a sight of humans doing the right thing.
