The World Weeps

 

The entire world’s gone mad it seems, can things get much worse?

Is it a form of mass insanity or some kind of cosmic curse?

 

Have we been targeted by a space ship, does something want this place;

is there an alien conspiracy to bring an end to the human race.

 

Perhaps there is some virus, some parasitic worm,

that’s going to finish us all off in a fatalistic squirm.

 

The UK has chosen Brexit and that’s not sorted out --

the consequences of that have put a lot of things in doubt.

 

Now yesterday the United States picked a president

that can only bring about a further global detriment.

 

I’m in a kind of mourning, grieving for common sense;

the feeling of such doom and gloom is severe and so intense.

 

The world’s about to plunge into a more chaotic state,

and the ensuing instability is bound to lead to hate.

 

When the reality becomes clear, within the next few years,

don’t come to me for sympathy, I’ve already shed my tears.

 

Maybe I am wrong and you’ll all get your paradise --

I’d sooner bet my future on a simple roll of dice.
