Searching Dung Heaps


Searching hearts for decency and integrity amongst
unscrupulous, discriminating people is hopeless.

Lies abound, faceless rumors are portrayed and
spat upon innocent victims.

There is no fairness in this world because there
are too many unfair people in charge of power.

Only minions of perplexing vexatious questions
are left in dung heaps with no one willing to
clean them up.

If done, it would eventually proclaim the return
of honesty and truthfulness in this decadent,
decaying world of today.

    Fully agreed, it hurts to agree but very true that present society sits on a dung heap. Most of the people are finding ways just to survive somehow. Now the buzz word is Live for the day .... In other word - Do hell with the values, ethics and ethos .......... what a modern world! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! But there will be an end to this hell. (Report) Reply
