What Kind Of World Is This?

What Kind Of World Is This?

Where we pay our actors

more than we pay our heroes?

What Kind Of World Is This?

Where we spend millions on diet foods,

while other people are starving?

What Kind Of World Is This?

Where we buy billions of bottles of water,

when other people don’t have any?

What Kind Of World Is This?

Where machines that give us plenty,

have left us with greed?

What Kind Of World Is This?

Where we leave the children to be abused,

rather than help them when we can?

What Kind Of World Is This?

  Were we read a poem like this,

   that tugs at our heartstrings,

    and we feel for a while,

     then erase it from our minds,

      then go on paying actors too much,

       and heroes too little,

        starving ourselves,

         and others too,

          drinking expensive water,

            while other people have none.

             get more of what we have plenty,

              but still overflow with greed,

                and try to be like some celebrity,

                   instead of what we were meant to be,

                    and watch people be hurt, put-down, and bullied,

                      but do nothing about it.

So again I ask,

     What Kind Of World Is This?

                   The kind of world we can change.
