Has Our World Gone Mad
At times bemused
By the turn society’s taking,
Sexuality so complex
Gender needing further context
All my preconceptions breaking.
Are cows good
On this we brood
Carbon footprint the new quandary,
Should we fly
Or cycling try
A simpler world I recall fondly.
Left or Right
The current fight
Politicians all grandstanding,
Of our hearts and minds demanding.
To take part
Is quite an art
Every word now needing measure,
So fast to sue
No surprise the past I treasure.
