the boy's poem on corruption

Toronto, 2019.11.15

Our son wrote a poem for a school assignment. He's in grade six. He chose to write on the subject of corruption.

I Don’t Understand
Why we trash our planet Why we can’t make decisions for ourselves Why we won’t decide to save our world

But Most Of All
We don’t care We want to live a good life But are we

What I Understand The Most is
Why we dig for oil Why we move around in cars Why we use electricity

I Don’t Understand
Why our leaders won’t listen Why they can’t make decisions Why they are even our leaders

But Most Of All
We crave money We are all corrupt Even the richest man on earth

What I Understand The Most Is
Why we have big homes Why we are greedy
