Point of View

Point of View


Nothing is beautiful

Not any sunrise

Not any dawn

I don’t believe in beauty

-I don’t believe at all


Like me be sceptical

Of everything you’ve been told

If anyone tells me it’s warm outside

-I tend to think it’s cold.


Don’t believe the TV news

Don’t believe the people when they tell you things they saw

And if the politicians say it’s peace

-then it’s probably war!


Don’t believe the internet

Don ‘t believe a word

Believe the things you’ve seen yourself

And remember what you’ve heard

People will tell you what they think is true

But what they are giving you

-is just a point of view

A well-constructed poem with an provocative conclusion. A good write, Steve.
