Silly Little Humans

Updated on November 12, 2018

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.


Silly humans, bustling and scuffling everyday.

Clinging on to things that matters not, things that when they past, will stay.

Look at the silly humans scorning skin color and race

Falling from enlightenment, holding on to vanity and scoffing at grace.

Look at them scared of each other, shielding behind the lies of fake news.

Living day to day not wanting to know the truth.

Look at them, silly little humans. Drinking coffee and sealing business deals.

Hop into speedy cars and flashes past the tiny little girl begging a meal.

Look at them, honoring the dead yet still not praising life.

Look at them destroying themselves, rejoicing in wicked and lapping up lies.

Just take a good look, look at them betraying a friendship to reach the top.

Selling souls for riches, now having drug itches and just can't stop.

Look at them, spending billions on porn but have nothing to give.

Look at them worshiping their fragile silly selves, yet have no real life to live.

Their heads down in smartphones, keeps them from understanding the sun.

Look at that stupid robber taking innocent lives with his gun.

Look at these girls, half naked and making unwanted babies.

They scoff at decency, a hooker is hot, nobody intrigued by being ladies.

Look now, the monkey laughs at them and simply waits.

For them to genocide humanity, making way for the apes.

Look at them, making missiles and fighting for land they did not make.

Yet they would run to another place if destroyed when the earth quakes.

Silly little humans. All caught in a world of what is told to them and what they can see.

Sight from two eyes, yet spiritually cannot see.

Go now silly human, go press your phone and do work.

Just think flashy car, sex, money, oil. While we take over earth.

      Good poem, Clive. You touch on some of the things that are wrong with society. Yes, there are a lot of silly little humans. Silly has its place to lighten the mood but not at the detriment of others.

      There's a time & place for silly and the same for serious. The importance lies in knowing the difference. You're obviously aware and that's a very good thing. As much as I love humor and laughter, I'm on the front lines when we need to be defenders & protectors. No laughing then, just taking care of business!

      Some very deep thoughts here Clive. You make an impression.

      Eric. Silly is good when it does not tie into naive. Being silly helps relieve stress. But being silly all the while makes you succumb to slavery.

      Pam, the world is much more that mere mortal achievements. There is a whole realm that mankind has become blinded to. No Scifi.

      Sorry Clive, I endorse silly. Perhaps I am just silly that way. But in seriousness not thinking really bothers me.

      I really like your writing, and yes, "silly humans" are aplenty. It was almost like God looked down and saw too much of all you wrote about and said "silly humsna' missing the point of life.

      I think your comment to Flourish is exactly right. Great job of writing this poetry.

      The takeover has been happening for years now. It starts with controlling thoughts and instilling fear.

      I like this! Silly humans indeed! We have a lot of them and a lot of wannabes and silly humans in training. I wonder about the takeover?
