Is This What We Have Become

As much as we hope that eventually human nature will turn to good
It seems we see signs everywhere of the eventual unlikelihood
We see money hoarders who care not one iota for the plight of the poor
We see those that will milk the system for all it can possibly endure
We see hoodlums on the streets punching old ladies for the sport
We see politicians lying through their teeth when the truth is nothing of the sort
We see morality totally ignored when it doesn't pay a sufficient dividend
We see greed rearing its ugly head everywhere as a means to an end
Drug dealers and pushers roam the streets with little or no fear
As it seems our resolve to eliminate addiction is nil, or so it would appear
Is there no path out of this horrific dilemma for today's human race?
Or will we continue this downward spiral at an even quicker pace?
We ask the important question 'Is this what we have become?'
Or maybe this is what we have always been and just where we come from
Whatever the answer if we each don't soon do our part to reverse this destructive trend
We will pass to our children's children a world that no one can possibly comprehend
