The world is turning upside down

The world is turning upside down
Population exploding out of bound
Babies crying from starvation
Too late to stop impending devastation

The world is turning upside down
Pollution in the air and ground
Forests dying, losing soil
Fish are floating covered in oil

The world is turning upside down
Nuclear weapons ready to pound
Chemical dust, biological weapons too
Designed to kill me and you

The world is turning upside down
Countries and religious wars around
Dictators will not step down
Until we bury them in the ground

The world is turning upside down
Corruption and money abound
Politicans, banks, companies and all
Seeing how much they can score


The world is turning upside down
Crime everywhere is found
Thieves, rapists, killers and all
Be sure to lock your front door

The world is turning upside down
New strains of viruses being found
Ebola, HIV and Hepatitis D
Hard to contain, moving free

The world is turning upside down
Drugs a plenty, dealt underground
Ecstacy, Mull, Crack and Smack
Our kids will end up in a sack

The world is turning upside down
fast food, no cooking sound
Hamburgers, Pizzas, hot dogs and fries
Fish and chips, and mutton pies

The world is turning upside down
The world is turning upside down
The world is turning upside down
Can the Internet twist it around?
