This Crazy World.

This Crazy World
In this crazy world
                    half dead from dereliction
                    half brutalised from deprivation
                    half drowned in a sea of greed
                    half devoured by perpetual need.
                    war shrieks from East to West
                    famine seldom seems to rest
                    hunger stalks the layman's life
                    poverty kills with a silent knife.
We find
                    a pompous pampered arrogant clique
                    live a life that's smooth and sleek
                    far removed from want and fear,
                    bought with another's sweat and tear.
                    not a word do the speak
                    to aid the fallen or the weak
                    preferring to kneel at luxury's shrine
                    repeating their mantra, "This is mine".
Now watch them
                    peddle lies of tongue and pen
                    slyly hoard their plunder then
                    with spurious sanctimonious phrase 
                    shed crocodile tears at man's malaise.
                    is it written that masses must sweat
                    deprivation and misery a constant threat
                    covering the world in measureless wealth
                    so the few can plunder with avid stealth?
In friendship
                    let's clasp each human hand
                    with compassion try to understand
                    our differences, our hopes, our fears
                    dragging mankind from this sea of tears.
                    a world where justice flowers
                    the many reap the fruits of their toiling hours
                    a world of sharing, tending the others need
                    an end to privilege, plunder and greed.
