Why


Why
why does our mother sun rise everyday
even though
it is nurturing a ruined world
run by greed, evil, and hate

Why
why does the earth not collapse in on itself
and try again
to do it right
to make a world where evil cannot stand up
and stays in a paralyzed state

Why
why do we continue
to walk the undefined pathway
that is terrible and dark
the pathway that we can fall
and hurt ourselves on

Because,
there is more love than greed
to go around,
the world's imperfection
is what makes it perfect,
and there is a lesson
taught on the dangerous path
before the bright destination

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
