People from the Future

People from the Future

Yo, people from the Future:
If you're around,
please help.
Disable all weapons,
the way they did
in that Star Trek II episode.
Dart them out of hands;
freeze time.
Stop cars.
Suspend planes.
Tell us
you won't stand
for violence,
gratuitous or other.
Gentle people.
Disable hate.
Dispense spores
of peace.

Dizzy us like Spock
when he laughs
at his other busy self.

Could you also
hurry those long trains
that run faster than jets?
Much safer, much cleaner
and you actually see outside,
into the bargain.

And finally, FP,
if it wouldn't be too much trouble,
please tell the nut fringe
that their prayer words sicken far more
than their visions of  apocalypse?

Thank you.

Sincerely, Frannie
