Paradise

nothing to say about this that is not said in the poem

Forget the clear blue sky

forget the golden shore

forget the secrete pathways

that others walked before

forget the drinks in coconuts

that exploit the passing trade

you go in search of paradise

in the wrong place i’m afraid

Forget the packaged desert islands

with a culture oh so fake

forget the holiday hot spots

that were designed to take

forget mind numbing tours

with nothing new to find

my friend I tell you paradise

is just a state of mind

Some find it in a crowed room

some find it on there own

some find it in a sacred place

where they go to atone

some find it by a babbling brook

or a car festooned with chrome

but some will tell you paradise

is to simply have a home
