The future awaits

here’s the future community

white domes of different shapes you see

where everyone can stay for free

away from harsh reality, that’s the key


everyone has its commitment

to be helpful, kind and pleasant

different religion and race

diversity we sure embrace and our forefront


the theory is good, will it work?

problems? have we done our fieldwork?

and can we all live together?

we may never know the answer, see through the murk*

* The Florette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more 4-line stanzas.

Rhyme scheme: a,a,b,a
Meter: 8,8,8,12
Fourth line requirement of internal (b) rhyme scheme, on syllable 8.

Like the outgrowing of a small flower, the forth line of each stanza is longer, and enwraps the previous lines. Line #4 requires an internal rhyme scheme that rhymes the eighth syllable with the end of line #3, and continues to add on four more syllables than the other lines so that the fourth line ends rhyming with lines #1 and #2.
