-What If-

What if
the intents of our minds
were displayed
in newspaper headlines?

What if
our past failures
were pasted
on ten thousand highway billboards?

What if
the darkness of our hearts
were put on a hard drive
and converted to video images,
seen by cities and villages
through television broadcasts
viewed by the masses?

If everyone's insides
were outside
for all to see
we might behave
quite differently.

Excellent poem. The title, the rhythm, the power of your questions and then the answer all worked perfect together. I must say this may be my favorite poem of yours yet.
