We Only Have One World

We only have one world,

One life,

One soul,

Two eyes.

We only have each other,

One mom,

One dad,

Four grandparents,

We only have our air,

One nose,

One mouth,

Two lungs,

We can all come together,

One community,

One city,

One world,

Because if we don’t,

Less trees,

No more bees,

Polluted water for me.

We can make our voices heard,

One email,

One town meeting,

Two million lobbyist.

We can make changes on our own,

And recycle,

Don’t use paper,

Grow food for later,

We can make this love grow,

With compassion,

And a hug,

Even for the bugs.

We can help our world survive,

Plant trees,

Clean water,

Make sure our fight doesn’t falter,

Because we only have one world,

In peril,

Almost sterile,

That we need to save.

There Should Be A Standard Of Living

There should be a standard of living

That the jobs are not giving

An allotment of pay

So you can eat in your way

Some kind of stipend

Procuring a lot with trees ripened

And a bed at the end of the day

With a pillow better than hay

There should be a standard of living

But the propaganda is spinning

Saying no way

What they say

Why do we want you to live anyway?

There should be a standard of living

So we can all stop giving

To the people that can’t afford food,

Or is the point to be rude?

All in all the cost is quite less,

And no one needs to protest,

When we save money through equity

And give people back their sanity

There should be a standard of living

That everyone in the world is given

Because we all live on this one marble,

And at some point it got garbled,

That we can survive,

With an environment deprived,

That money means something,

And that compassion means nothing,

There is a standard of living,

That we should all have been given,

The moment we came on to this earth,

So that we can help end the mirth.

The prairie dog and the berry

The deserts hot glow,

Will make you hungry don’t you know?

as my belly grumbles from the heat,

I realize I haven’t even had a drink,

I scan the horizon with my gaze,

Is that a berry bush in the distant haze?

As I scamper over there to see,

I pop my head up to look around me,

I learned my lesson from the last time,

To make sure there are no predators behind.

As I hold the berry in my hand,

I try to figure out if I had seen it on this land.

So dark in color and texture too,

I wonder if it is truly food?

But it scent is subtle and sweet,

I crack it open and touch its meat,

Everything has check out on my end,

I take a tiny bite to check it when,

A harsh gasp fills my throat,

I spit it out into the moat,

I guess it was poison you see,

You simply got to test everything.

That’s when I spot a red berry up ahead,

And I am off to test everything again.

The Beasts

Slowly moving out from the shadows,

The weary animal let’s out a small hallow.

Not sure of what to make of me,

I see the gleam of their teeth at me,

But the beast is careful too

But the beast is careful too

As the shadows get clearer,

I see that more are drawing nearer,

They bait me with their sight,

To see if I will offer a fight,

But the beasts are careful too

But the beasts are careful too

The beasts furry back surrounds me in alley.

I slowly back against the wall trying to take a tally.

I know that there’s none behind me,

I try to run but they find me,

But the beasts are careful too

But the beasts are careful too

My clothes begin to shred,

And I am only seeing red,

I run till they are behind me,

And then I hide so they won’t find me,

But the beasts they must pursue

But the beasts they must pursue

Hiding behind the shrub,

As they are drooling for their grub,

Then I hear other people’s screams,

And I am finally safe it seems,

But the beasts they will be back,

But the beasts they will be back.
