New World Order (In Poetic Prose)


I heard the term in the 1970s
Never in the 50s or 60s
In 1991 a play came out performed in London
On the so called term: “The New World Order”
Can’t remember by whom, or what theater!
I was in London, in ’97…heard about it.
What does it mean I asked myself?
The New World Order!
I had some idea, with annoyance!
It sounded like the end of the world!
Something from Star Trek!
I asked a learned friend what it meant,
I mean the pure meaning, no nonsense.
He whispered: “Blackout on Democracy.
