Simply Walk Away

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Old Rapper

Wrapper Discarded ~ Philip Brent Harris


I wonder how we’re always so damn busy
Now when we no longer work every day.
Calls without ending, with doctors, friends
and, most of all, telemarketers and scams.

No warranties to extend now, in the future.
We are current with all of our bills as well.
The doctors we need and friends we want.
This won’t fall away, now or in the future.

One concerns our problems and the others
Shares their problems in the greatest detail.
We share, too, but it’s life, all to no avail.
This will only increase the older we grow

And our memories will probably go to shit.
We won’t do as many things that we want
Concerts and lectures to no longer attend
I believe the pandemic has been a preview.

Good lord, does it mean I have to pretend
It’s not like it was for show, what a bore.
If we want to keep living, then we must.
We’ll have to stay home where it’s warm.

Such a minor complaint many would say.
Many around the world don’t live so long.
Our healthcare, medicine cost too much,
With profit, the all mighty dollar the goal.

Despite this it’s good though I still worry
Feel sorry for the children; we have none.
Sons, daughters all and all  they will face.
The storms, floods, and dwindling waters.

Perhaps advances in medicine will extend
My life long past what any would expect.
Taking up room while forever complaining
This is not the way it was done in our day.

Will I be happy then or will I hate it there,
Be thrown in the gutter, urged to just die?
Resources are short and you’ve had a turn.
If this is the case, I will simply walk away.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment 

Unite the World!
