" GOVERNING THE WORLD "

May be an image of flower and outdoors

Wise people know that they know nothing. Erudite people doubt that they know many things. Ignorant people are certain that they know everything. Now, The first category of people refuses to rule, and The second is reluctant to do so, It remains to the third category to govern the world, Therefore Do not wonder, my friend, why humanity in such a mess We find! © Demetrios Trifiatis 24 June 2021 * I would like to thank all my fellow poets for their support all these years and also would like to share the honors of POTD with them. Likewise, I thank PoetrySoup for providing this beautiful forum where aspiring poets are given the opportunity to test their poetic wings. God bless all of you.

The first two sound a bit irresponsible, Why would they allow the third to rule? A thought-provoking piece. Congratulations Demetrios Trifiatis on POTD.

Our world is falling apart, due to, "Lack of respect, those that choose to follow the crowd, instead of looking for guidance from Our Creator. Change is more than waiting to see what will happen- it is an *Action* word. Which means, taking a step in the right direction. Your thoughts are deep and powerful. Congratulations Demetrios, on Poem of the Day. My best to you. Hugs, Brandy

That’s certainly true of the current world leadership. We have a China Putin Fauci puppet in the White House and a weak woke G7 that have all drunk the climate alarmism kool-aid.
