Socially conscious

I was fine ’til she called, her voice full of stress

“I just read the paper,” she said,

“And the world is a mess!

Our healthcare system is up the creek

Floods have ravaged Mozambique.

The turtle is history. They’re still killing whales

Crime is rampant so we’re building more jails

And I read about that African nation

Where AIDS is killing a whole generation!

Some see the world as their own Utopia

I think they suffer from a case of Myopia

I have to close down now; I’ve no time to spare

I have a lunch date and I must do my hair.

The world’s full of sorrow,

What more can I say?

I’ll call you tomorrow.” she said

“Have a nice day!”
