And Then I Had a Stranger Dream

(With No Apologies to Ed McCurdy,
nor to Pete Seeger, nor Simon and Garfunkle, &c.)

Last night I had the strangest dream
     I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
     to put an end to war

I dreamed I saw a mighty room
     with women everywhere
And the paper they were signing swore
     that fighting we’d forbear

Yet ere the paper’s ink could dry
     a resistance male and red
Arose and swore ’twould fain expire
     than by such trash be led

They wrote state laws to squelch the vote
     and pushed “the right to life”
While ammo, guns, and camouflage
     sold well and soon grew rife

And then I had a stranger dream
     I’ll never dream again
I dreamed the world had next agreed
     to put an end to men

About Greg Wright

I have worn many hats as a writer and editor over the years. Unlike my scholarly and journalistic work from the "old days" at Hollywood Jesus, Past the Popcorn, or SeaTac Blog, the writing here is of a more overtly personal and spiritual nature. I hope it provokes you as much as it provokes me.
