MEME EXPRESS has suggested this theme and I fear I've taken a rather ironic view of what I believe was meant to be an inspiring theme! I know the original song was written to encourage charitable giving, so I apologise to all I've managed to depress!
WE AREN'T THE WORLD!
'We are the World?'
You know, I really doubt it.
Although we couldn't live too well without it.
Maybe it's this, our terrible conceit,
That's leading us toward our own defeat.
Human beings are, of course, a part,
But they didn't even show-up at the start!
They made a really very late arrival
And no-one's putting bets on their survival!
The dinosaurs seemed lords of all creation
But ruled for just a limited duration!
As million after million years went by
'We are the World!'....
I'm sure that was their cry.
But they were forced to take a final bow.
Tyranosaurus Rex! Where are you now?
We're not the world! So let us be more humble!
Lest our bright egos take a nasty tumble!
We can enjoy this world in all its glory,
Though we are not the heroes of the story.
