What is wrong with the world today? You can’t believe a word they say.
They tell us they want to stop a war and then go off and bomb some more.
They tweet and jeer to not lose face until we fear a new arms race.
Yet still parade like special friends as if sport all the trouble ends.
There’s poison smeared upon a door, something we’ve never seen before.
Two people almost die and still we do not know who made them ill.
It’s frightening how we do not mind if no more elephants we find,
If all the trees are felled and burned and calls to save the planet spurned.
And while we all pollute the sea with plastic, they cannot agree
To treat our world with love and care knowing this is the earth we share.
