A week away in the bundu ~
Heaven on Earth ~
Away from the DIS-ease
And DIS-order of CIVIL-isation,
The cultivation of sophistication
In nations, where evolution
Lags behind what man desires.
What was thought to be progress
Is, in fact, re-gression
And chemical compounds rule the way
In which our foods are grown ~
Animal and vegetable ~
DNA manipulated, cloned, all in the name
Of improvement; a few steps forward
And how many back? Gods in white coats
Seeking, questing what? Eternity?
