World Today


A very sad state of affairs

That nations around the globe

Feel the need to have armies

To protect themselves from one



Human nature puzzles

In its bi-polarity of temperaments

As one thrust into this circus of fact

I often find myself feeling heavily



Just wish disagreements and

Differences of opinions didn't

Escalate to aggression and violence

'Cause I really can't understand the



Most intelligent on the planet apparently

But it's difficult for me to equate

Pettiness and nonsense

As parameters of an intelligent mind



Can we not cohabit peacefully

With one another?

Stop these ideological, political (and

Whatever-else-word ending in -al)



Haven't we all had enough?

Why is it so hard to make it stop?

I don't get it; I really don't

Just because we think differently



We're taught that we should

Know history so we may study past mistakes

In order to not perpetuate their reoccurence

Wonder what became of that principle since ...



or so it seems

Wonderful understanding here. You think that it would be easy to get along. Sometimes I think remembrance of history is what is to blame. Well expressed my dear friend :)

Great thoughts ... sad, yes ... difficult to understand, very much so, yes ... I like your words, your thoughts, your feelings in this poem, wish that the leaders of this world could ask themselves these same questions you ponder ...

I agree with your sentiments completely, and it's not only countries against countries but also different factions within the countries. It seems like it's a fight between good and evil--or as good as humans are capable of being in a governing form: A benevolent government against an evil one. It is a sad state of affairs throughout the world. All that comes to mind is the end of empires (in this case, the planet Earth) when everyone starts warring against each other and the decadence wins over sanity. :(

Your post expresses feelings and sentiments that I have often ponderred on, yet have been unable to find the words for. So thank you so very much for succinctly expressing these thoughts in the manner you have.
