My Idea Of Utopia

Other folks rejoice and dance in the streets. I wring my hands. Gays can serve in the military. Women can fight in war. I hold out hope in my universe that every soldier will put down his weapon and refuse to go to any more wars. Let the rich men who have disagreements wrestle naked in jell-o. I love the soldiers. I hate the wars.

In college I took a class, Idea Of Utopia. To all the rest it was about utopian literature. To me it was about changing the world.

It's all about the love. It's all about the service. As long as there's one hungry baby out there we can't afford the luxury of war.
