How can one cope? Life's one big stress!
Huge learning curve; we cannot guess
What challenges will come our way
Standing still is NOT the way!
We try to keep up – it is hard
Worldwide disasters hit us hard
Immigrants in sinking boats:
A European summit votes ...
The world's gone mad; old values die
Each one for himself; we try
To think of others, make life fair
But the lure of money's always there.
We live beyond our means indeed
Financial gain our only creed
The values that we all once held
Like venerable oaks are felled!
