An Anarchist’s Declaration by Jim Lawrence

All governments will be disappeared
Being as useless as a spandex tea tray
Nation states will be deported, dragging their discredited boundaries with them
Armies, navies, air forces, cops and spies will become Buddhist monks
Money will be no longer relevant as we all work from love of creation

The laws of physics will seem to be suspended
As miracles that confound description
Turn the streets into blazing visions of shadows and fire

Widows will beat their carpets for gold dust
CEOs will throw themselves at the feet of Gina Lollabrigida
Helicopters will buzz overhead in Busby Berklee formations
Dropping leaflets for propaganda by ballet
Drag queens will be in charge of the economy, redistributing fabulousness
And donkey sanctuaries will become places of secular worship

Everyone will be a legend and deserve the honour of being legendary
Trees will finally be understood
The Great Work will sort everything out and the mountains will laugh

Machine guns will be transformed into sex toys in a love factory
Somewhere in the middle of what used to be a country that’s no longer there
All languages will be mutually intelligible and sound like music
And all the young dudettes will be safe on the street

Portals to rainbow kitchens will open in school playgrounds
Where domestic science will be taught by illuminated cooks
Windows into mind laboratories will be available in every library
Lending the means of self-discovery to all, including cyborgs, androids and robots
And every religion, every science, every art, will be revealed as footsteps in the mud climbing towards perfect understanding

It will be impossible to make a bad cup of coffee, builder’s tea will cure all ills
And there will be cake and biscuits forever
When we wake up the day after the revolution in inner space
This time next Tuesday
