just one

hay canada we can do it
we can expunge money
our bounty can support our selves 
with plenty left over to give

i can keep making pizza
truckers keep trucking
we still need people...

to know where everything is going
raising kids could be a job
gangsters instead of doing it for money
do it to keep it away from the kids
politicians might start working for good
anythings possible 

everyone says they want to be good
say they are good
there is more of us than their of them
so why do we let them win
so easy to...

hell dude our shoes would cost the same

    We do like to believe there are more good people than there are bad ones. I think there are a lot of shades of gray into which we fall. But the day politicians start doing something good on people's behalf, I'll be shocked. This is a highly creative free verse form, John. Enjoyed it very much and it's nice to read your work again. Best wishes, Carolyn
