WHAT A WHINEY FOOL WORLD!

I see politicians of blue,

Politicians of red,

Forget me and you -

By dogma they're led,

And I say to myself:

What a whiney fool world.

 

I hear moans of complaint,

Envy and spite,

Demanding...demanding...

 Anything seen as a "right",

And I say to myself:

What a whiney fool world.

 

I read and I hear

Of strangers on the shore,

Seeking new lives

But wanting their old law,

And I say to myself:

What a whiney fool world. 

 

I see violent offenders

Let out on bail,

No fear of justice,

No cares about jail,

And I say to myself:

What a whiney fool world.

 

I see the future looming

With a real sense of dread,

And hope I go quickly,

At peace in my bed -

When I'll say to myself:

What a whiney fool world!

Thanks Hannah. I seek to entertain, enliven and maybe
(occasionally) even enlighten those with a receptive mind.

A great poem M C , a critique of what's going on, the craziness etc.
Very well written and thought provoking.

I thought it was a very clever piece of verse. A lot of work went into this I can tell. Skillfully put together. Thankyou for sharing

Thanks for commenting, DM. I suddenly found myself
comparing the optimism of Satchmo's big hit with what is
around so often these days.

I found this a moving, sadly truthful piece MC

Can I add my own humble verse?

You've described society
Where we've all sunk to
The question we now have to ask
What are we going to do?
