What’s wrong with the world?

What’s wrong with the world?
So grievously talented.
Balanced on arms
of the merciless justice called Life.

A bear eats a man
without asking permission
This one is blind
while that has vision
Children are dying
and adults are growing
Hunger keeps crying
and pain is all-knowing

Fantasy, reality
All mixed up a mess
Our social morality
we neither confess
nor deny we’re in trouble
This little bubble
will burst
but first
the question:
What’s wrong with the world?
Why, “nothing” I say!
It’s just perfect
’cause we made it that way!
It’s like a game
but with no-one to blame!

Floating and flying
though time and in space;
the laughing stock of the universe:
the amazing human race!
