An uncertain future, then what of the children?


Child of our time

should be doing fine

enjoying a safe life

on a wonderful Earth,

laughing at tomorrow

looking at blue skies

yet many are dying  

a painful death,

victims of hunger

the price of greed

parents are dead

there is little ahead,

as the oceans will rise

so the land will disappear

even the rich child

will learn about fear,

what have we done

destroyed our home

now we blame God

say look what he has not done.

A little while longer

so said his son

and no flesh would be saved

so the end will come.

The child of tomorrow

will inherit what will be

the greed will be dust

lost for eternity.
