Our world is in a downward spiral...



All of earth’s societies need to get laid,

After all, they are permanently boring and openly displayed,

No more war, no more stress, we need to just get out and play,

Take a lesson from the children; they know what is best,

The earth is in a downward spiral, no one can think this is jest…


Just open your eyes; look at the world through clear minds,

Treat your neighbor like your supposed to do, brothers, sisters,

Treat the rest of the world, all religions, nationalities with the same,

Respect you wish yourself to be treated with, love them all…


Do not spout off at the mouth, blaming someone else for the world going south,

Each of us has to take some of the blame, else the future, if any, will be the same,

Seek only peace, or if you will, get yourself a piece,

As that is better than being insane…

I think you nailed it, Ed. Most people, myself included, take themselves too seriously. I think I'm going to take your wise advice and spend the next few months playing--see if I can revive that child inside and forget about the world's problems. They'll still be there when I come back . . . if I come back.

Always your friend,

Aha... an updated, poetic version of that age-old, but still wonderfully cheeky: "make love, not war"... Sigh.. if only, eh, Ed? I'm still pushing for the idea that the leaders all stuff themselves into a place far from the rest of us and let them battle it out.. mess up their 3 piece suits? I don't think so! Leave the rest of us alone... the "common man and woman" understands how to bend a little, give and take a little, and ultimately, to get along... I'm behind you here. katy xox.
