This work has reached the exceptional level
A question for us all


by Miss Sherry

The earth is crawling with humans,
But where has our humanity gone?
Why the cruelty and distrust
Tell me where did this world go wrong?

Swarms of us, riots of us, angry
People who live in fear every day
Others who kill without compunction,
to prove that crime really does pay

Earth has become a prison,
shaped with hatred instead of bars
It's easy to forget the forests and lakes,
to never lay in grass under the stars

Loving has been traded for sex,
often brutal, callous and cold
Babies give birth to babies, younger yet
No one thinks they will live to grow old

We crawled up from the primordial slime
to become the masters of our race
Now our moments are marked out
on the calendar of our disgrace

We have messed up big time. Can it ever be fixed?
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
