Our world

 


Ours is a world of beauty
so much finer than the ordinary world
of strife, vulgarity and commonness,
of egoism, shortsightedness and vanity,
while ours lasts forever
gilded by the harmony of unsurpassed nobility
of the refinement and idealism of abstract truth
as found by geniuses like Handel, Beethoven, Chopin
and Brahms, a higher world of thought
than any brutal realism, and actually
a truer world than any real one.
Since we know the key and have it,
let’s just stick to it and keep it
and forget about the rest,
that keeps committing all their follies
on the road to self-destruction
better without us,
who are reserved for better purposes
than just the ordinariness of vanity.
