Walking by Water


When we walk down a busy street
We hear the thrum of the traffic's beat,
We see the myriad frowning faces,
We're very aware of humanity's traces.
When we walk by the water under the trees,
Where every prospect seems to please,
We know we're where we ought to be
And everything's in harmony.


(An Acrostic)

Divided we fall, united we stand!
Isn't that message rather grand?
Visualise a world improved
If by that message we were moved!
Division leaves us all in pieces!
Every noble aim decreases!
Double! Treble our situation!
Witness nation joined with nation!
Empathy! And brotherhood!
Fantasy? Oh that we could
All combine to stand as one!
Leave behind the bomb and gun!
Leave behind the jingoistic!
(Let's pretend I'm realistic!)
