Poem - Fever Dream

The poem “Fever Dream” was inspired by social media declarations of a nation being found under a single theme, an imagined theme that must be somehow enforced to present day.


Fever Dream

One nation under all
founded for a single cause
this is the mantra that resides
in the minds of simple folk

this passion above all else
so say the pundits to themselves
the holy writ applied across
imaginations in the now

this becomes the fervent lie
by the ones who reside
in the boxes built with walls
from the delusion of the mind

uniformity becomes the joke
denying nature of its course
reality will have a say
disallowing the fever dream.
