                         When is it going to end?
We can go to the moon and send unmanned vehicles to Mars,
but we can’t stop starvation, disease, ignorance, poverty or wars.
Our prisons runnethover with criminals at a phenomenal
cost, while our streets and infrastructure take the loss.
Our cities are  going  bankrupt while some fat cat politictions
stay the boss.
Our children wear their thumbs out on video games but can’t
 correctly spell their teacher’s names.
The air and water-ways are polluted and the rain forests are
 being destroyed by man’s greed, yet no one is willing to plant
 a single seed.
The world’s population is growing by leaps and bounds, while
ironically the world’s resources are dwindling down.
When is it going to end…
well my friend,  when it all
 become just dust in the wind!
