' At the Crossroads ' by Thaddeus Hutyra

Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras
the lovers of wisdom
Confucius, the godfather
of Chinese ancient traditions
godlike Zarathustra
holy Thomas Aquinas
Nicholas Copernicus, Giordano Bruno
René Descartes and Thomas Hobbes
Montesquieu, the political thinker
of the Age of Enlightenment
Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson
Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud
Bertrand Russell and David Lewis
the fathers of analytic philosophy
Wittgenstein, John Rawls, Robert Nozick
you all, the great masters
of the philosophical thought
Tribute to all of you, indeed !!

Masters, what would you say now
if you saw what's happening
in different parts of the world?
A situation close to
Apocalypse Now, indeed
The Syrian civil war
butchering of innocents
inclusive women and children
pogroms of Christians
in Islamic societies
the deadly hurricanes
and as vicious tornadoes
from the US Midwest
to Typhoon Haiyan
in Philippines
Japan's Fukushima disaster
Indonesia's tsunami earlier
the more and more acid 
rising seas and oceans
disappearing species
the global warming
in a Formula One alike speed
rising enmity of people
against people
races against races
ideologies against ideologies
the crisis in the Free World itself
and everywhere else
in much more a way
Is these all not just a step
to a final Apocalypse Now ?!

John Kennedy, the president we lost
what would you say if you saw
what's happening now
in your beloved America
and every other corner worldwide ?
Marilyn Monroe, you the tragic icon actress
what would you say if you saw
what people are doing nowadays
with each other, jumping to each other's eyes ?

Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren
Presidents Clinton and Obama
Chancellor Angela Merkel
Cameroon, Hollande, Donald Tusk 
Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce 
is this world mirroring the world
as you have ever envisioned?
or is this world just at its crossroads
nearing the end of its civilisations ?
Being doomed like Mars before
to turning yet into another red planet ?
