Mostly Good People



The world's made up of mostly good people Except for the lunatic fringe Too bad we can't just get rid of these jokers These yahoos have come unhinged! Send 'em away to some distance galaxy Far, far away from us guys Let 'em infect some other civilization We've had it right up to our eyes! It's a dream I know, they'll still be around When we finally close up shop But the last to go will be us poets for sure We'll utter the very last thought! The world's made up of mostly good people Except for the lunatic fringe My question is why the hell must it be this way Why are these guys so unhinged? © Jack Ellison 2013

    It's this way in order to balance our lives. It's, essentially, Yin & Yang gone wild. More importantly, it helps us value the good that is there. To value what we do have, rather than what we don't. What we need, rather than want. :) Awesome lines sir!

    They've probably become unhinged because they've been around Dragon too long...LOL... You know Why don't we see women in the world's major terrorists groups... and unhinged groups? I think they just medicate the women and tuck them away... quickly... Tho they might be the hands behind the terrorist's cradles.
