The Borrowed Future

To observe the happy ignorance divide,
when blindside vanity takes a ride.
The affordable vision without integrity,
overspread trust in God for certainty.
Status quo in brisk and surety,
invested in generations of immortality.
While in those pleasant ideal we talk,
abusing the resources as we walk.
To gain in every art to be tried,
mistaken foolishness with pride.
Witnessing all scruple cares to prove,
to reward the borrowed love.
Propitious heaven and absolute adored,
cooking the golden goose implored.
The prosperous falling with ardent eyes,
to obtain by all means the needed price.
Blind power granted with determined affairs,
jumping boats before the falling shares.
Warnings dispersed on empty air,
economic footprints without repair.
The boundless sky in perfect image,
refined suits handle shifted fault scrimmage.
The comedy as human race preside,
not seeing history as true learning guide.
