Politics, Ice creams and Dreams

Politics, Ice creams and Dreams

I had a dream
And in that dream there was trust
And that trust was justified
And that trust was gratified
And that trust was unified
With all my brothers and sister

I had a dream
And in that dream politicians cared
And that caring led to happiness
And that caring rid us of hopelessness
And that caring gave us wholesomeness
For all my brothers and sister

I had a dream
And in that dream love conquered all
And that love put an end to hunger
And that love stopped the warmongers
And the love silenced the guns of thunder
Between all my brothers and sisters

Then I woke from this dream
And I spoke of this dream
Told my MP about this dream
To make reality this dream.

But I might as well have been driving
A car made or ice cream
For the good it did me.

It started, in my head, being sung by Anne Hathaway and she slowly morphed into Martin Luther King Jr.

I bet ice cream cars go at a fair old lick :-)

Politics and ice cream. Usually they go together like... Well, I can't think of any two things that are so further apart.

But you've made them work here.

Kudos.
