a thought

when night falls
the pigeons go away
and the stars come out

as i was falling asleep
i thought
that is a good system

maybe the world would be a better
and more peaceful place

if others practiced
a similar system

what if the men went away
and the women came out

so that like the stars and the pigeons
they never had to see each other

or the white people went away
and the black people came out

or the gay people went away
and the straight people came out

or the christians went away
and the muslims came out

you get the idea

maybe my idea has some holes in it
or could be tweaked a little

it is just a thought
one of many

that i sometimes have
as i fall asleep
