What Do Humans Really Want?: A Poem
Revolutions brought about despotic rule,
and ill-fated elections made nations lose,
the world failing miserably at that school
with nothing left but one or other excuse.
What do we want but a new chance to complain
dictatorships stink, democracy doesn't deliver
capitalism is selfish, and communism insane
atheism wrong, religion duping a believer.
Could we make up our minds what is good for all
or it's all about tastes and different mind styles
so far looking like we are settling for a stall
living of ideas from different crap piles.
In world excelling at conflicts of all sizes
from personal to that of a global extent
how can we expect any good surprises
that would mean a joint human intent.
I don't want to sound overly fatalistic
and deep in heart I trust human drive to grow
so let me end this with something more optimistic
with words I know we can create a friend, not only a foe.
