Upside Down - Poem by Korey Mcgee

I know the world is upside down, when Man seeks above all, personal gain, always in search, of Riches and Fame..
I know the world is upside down, when Man is afraid to take any chance, only to make it safely, to the inevitable last dance..
I know the world is upside down, when Man is made, to believe, that our origin, is “God's children”, Adam and Eve..
I know the world is upside down, when Man wages war, in the name of a “Savior”, when young men are urged to battle, taught to obey like sheep and cattle..
I know the world is upside down, when Man's worst fear is death, scared to face the last breath, cautious of what will be, solely relying on “God” to set them free..
I know the world is upside down, when man cannot “afford”, to feed the world's poor, devastation, like the earthquake, that rocked the Haitians, the worlds more powerful nations, will soon set up station, probable outcome: dictation..
I know the world is upside down, when I live in, “the greatest country the world has ever known”, yet we are the leading contributor, to Mother Nature's gravestone. Climate change, global warming, its nature sending her warning, two possible outcomes are forming..Chaos or Order, and we are getting close to the boarder..
I know the world is upside down, when government seeks to intrude, naturally at the center of feud, laying the “facts” out, surely construed, their plot; for us not to pursue, free thought, as if it's a taboo..
I know the world is upside down, when Man is judged by material possession, as if it is a reflection, of our inner complexion..
I know the world is upside down, when human ego destroys the earth, only concern, “what is it worth? ”, “money makes the world go round”, but it will be found, that it will take the profound, to keep us, out of the ground, the system must change, be re-arranged..
I know the world is upside down, when water, a basic component of life, is the reason, for much of the “3rd worlds” strife, clean water to drink, is becoming extinct, take a second to think, for every blink, of an eye, a child will die, a family will cry, but the developed world, will just fly by, hardly even a sigh, no answer to why, what does this imply, that humanity, is living a lie, do we not hear, the global outcry? ..
I know the world is upside down, when we vowed, “Never Again”, after the wake of the Rwanda Armageddon, a million innocent souls were taken, and the world seemed to be awaken, even a little shaken, but only a decade gone by, and 2 million Sudanese had been targeted to die..the history of genocide,67 million souls, the result of greed's toll, death should not be our goal, for this is how I know, the world is upside down..
