Divided We Fall

 

Another major fissure,

another deepened crack,

from the politics of playground

we are all under attack.

The world’s being run by children

with not a clue of tact;

the insults that they hurl around

they never will retract.

It’s not a state of a few countries

but a global situation;

we’re all victims now around the world

of an infantile infestation.

Religion against religion,

race pitted against race,

the cohesive disintegration

is really a disgrace.

The rich are looking down on us,

as the poor, they target poor;

the idea of stability

has long run out that door.

We are governed now by tantrums,

by squabbles and by fights;

a world of no compassion

and of diplomatic slights.

I’m fearing for the people,

the ones that are like us,

we’ll be forgotten and neglected

by this competitive fuss.

Give a child a button,

say, ‘This, don’t ever touch.’

The temptation is just so increased,

no caution there, as such.

The world is disunited

to such a wide extent,

the fall, it is there waiting

with it’s radical descent.

Apocalypse is beckoning

if communication does not mend,

a world that is just blown apart,

there is just no way to defend.
