Before You Go
~~~~~ It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth.
Do you think our getting old is making some folks rich?
Tell you that’s true and not some sort of computer glitch,
though the people taking care of us do not get that dosh.
Those farther up the food chain chew the expensive nosh.
Our ship’s top deck grows higher, as we’re put in steerage.
Yet some still remain convinced they can join the peerage.
The middle will descend still lower, as all must plainly see;
majority have been tossed overboard to drift on out to sea.
After all, you didn’t think that decision would be up to you?
No one may live that fabled dream, except just a lucky few.
So my advice is sit back, relax and enjoy this messy show,
savor as much pleasure as possible, before the time you go.
Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
