What do us Humans Yearn

Having read the news as we continue our life's displays It's similar news to them, when our parents were young It's towards sad to tragic as we just don't seem to learn What do we bring to the table, what do us humans yearn Beirut, Syria, whether deliberation, or accident prone? It's similar news to them, when our parents were young Famine, floods, fighting, bloods, all on today's phones Just what have we learnt from the tips of our tongues Will we keep reading the news as continuous life flays It's now similar news to us, we've not learnt when young We're towards sad to tragic as our learning's lost it's turn What do we bring to the table, what do us humans yearn
