Off Kilter

 

The whole world is off kilter,

spinning still, it’s true;

but how long will it be this way

with this unstable view?

Unity, there’s no such thing

except when advantage can be got;

with nation using nation

a world community it’s not.

There’s market forces all at play,

sanctions that are enforced,

threats that are exchanged

that knock the world off course.

A global view, there’s no such thing;

agreement can’t be made;

the threat of war is lurking

although still in the shade.

The planet holds it’s orbit

as it circles round the sun

but how long will it stay that way

before it comes undone?
