Our Doomsday Express


On humanities horizon, what's next?
More wars, more famine, more homeless?
Will these horrors that have us so perplexed
Keep us on the doomsday express?

Oversized greed and gas guzzling cars
Political search for power
Symbolic of our many human faux pas
That hasten humanity's zero hour

Now's the time to come to our senses
So our children can better cope
Review our values and past false pretenses
To offer our children some hope

I liked the title.
Everyone of us have to shred our false ego and fake labels to make this world a better place.
Nice write.

This is good Stan.
I begin to think we are far away from being able live as decent human beings...
perhaps our advertised causes are wrong ...
