Living day-to-day, we think we’ve got issues.
But turn on the news and there’s real need for tissues.
No child should die naked except for a nappy.
Then splashed on the news making regimes feel happy.
Kids experiencing gunfire, chemicals and war.
And really, please tell me, what on earth is this for?
My kids are so lucky, they have no idea,
What it is to be hungry, scared and feel fear.
Human beings court destruction, corruption and pain.
And we do this again, and again, and again.
No God would justify actions like these.
So, for the love of all Gods just stop it now please.
I’m not preaching here, this is more of a rant.
Mean no more to the world than a minuscule ant.
But we’ve got to start somewhere, let’s all give a stuff.
Come on, live and let live; enough is enough.
Let’s bring up our children to be kind and to share.
In the hope that as adults they’ll live with that care.
We’re one tiny planet in one huge universe.
Shouldn’t we try to do better, not worse?
