Goofballs

Humans are such a combative lot It's why we're under so much stress We act like a bunch of goofballs Little wonder the world's such a mess Why can't we all just get along? Don't get it, it's really too much The pundits say it's human nature Throw up their hands in disgust Been like this since the very beginning Nations fighting nations for more Wonder if us guys could really survive Without destruction, killings, or war Do you think we'll ever see the day When we live in harmony with each other? There's not a freaking chance in hell We'll just go on killing our brothers! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Not so funny but so very true. I think the World should be run by Poets. I am sure we would find a way to get along. At the very least we would take time to listen to each other.

    As Carol says Jack it seems sad but true. I believe there is a promise in the Bible that says things will change but When is the question ? xx

    I don't see the usual optimistic view from you on this fine morning, Jack. Lol. So are we doomed? I can only think we will get better as we will change glory to glory :) Love ya, Toquyen
