Escape From Reality - Poem by Stanley Cooper

To awaken from our life-long dream
And discover the world as it is
We would receive a reality gleam
That reality is well worth the miss

We choose to keep the world out of sight
And continue to dream our years through
Clearly we need this reality flight
Of reality we don’t want a clue

So slumber we will to avoid what exists
Reality is not that great
The world in its state has gone far amiss
So we’ll dream to ameliorate
