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 UnderstandWhy we trash our planet Why we can’t make decisions for ourselves Why we won’t decide to save our world
But Most Of AllWe don’t care We want to live a good life But are we
What I Understand The Most isWhy we dig for oil Why we move around in cars Why we use electricity
I Don’t UnderstandWhy our leaders won’t listen Why they can’t make decisions Why they are even our leaders
But Most Of AllWe crave money We are all corrupt Even the richest man on earth
What I Understand The Most IsWhy we have big homes Why we are greedy
WHY WE LIVE FOR MONEY
