Oh Blind, So Blind - Poem by Driss Ezzireg

Oh blind, so blind
We, poor mankind.
Poor though so rich;
Sick though so strong;
Sad though so playful;
Hopelessly determined
To see this earth ruined.
Hard to believe, hard to think
Human kind is about to sink.
Oh blind, so blind
We, poor mankind.
Our hope, you, children
Our sure, true way out.
We count on your wisdom
To cherish and protect
This, our lovely kingdom.
