Homogenous Utopia

Are we secretly hoping for a world

Where one day 

“We’ll all get along”

In a homogenous utopia 

Where no one’s skin has any colour

And we all speak good English 

Treating each other like family

Where no one cares 

About politics or war

Or anything uncomfortable?

That’s heavy on the homogenous 

And light on the utopia.

Humankind is expansively heterogenous,

Increasingly complicated 

And progressively sophisticated-

We can aim for so much more 

Than simply ‘getting along’.
