Analysis of Chimerical Visions



It would be satirical
to show human caprice.

It would be empirical
to see hatred decrease.

It would be numerical
to need no more police.

It would be just lyrical
to give people surcease.

It would be hysterical
to laugh as a release.

It would be chimerical
to have aggression cease.

It would be a miracle
to find a world at peace.
