Are We Having Fun Yet

Summer 2012 013

The world keeps spinning faster

and people seem to get much nastier.

No one has time for anyone else

and I have to ask –

Are we having fun yet?

The maniac on the corner,

just shot four or five.

He said the devil made him do it,

but tell that to those who are dead.

Are we having fun yet?

Ironic isn’t it –

that another bomb,

has destroyed a hundred lives or so.

Taken the innocent,

who had so much more to live.

Are we having fun yet?

Open up the online news,

some crazy fool,

has driven down a little child.

Of course it took talent,

to have had five shots of whiskey before.

Are we having fun yet?

Another fool is yelling for money,

says the government –

stole and put him into bankruptcy.

No business, no money, no family,

but the congressmen are sitting,

in the Bahamas having a blast,

not a thought about the past.

Are we having fun yet?

When will this craziness stop?

When will people say enough?

When will this world ever learn?

To live in peace and harmony,

so no more lives are lost

and people can be saved.

Prayers answered and countries

sparking flames of love,

all across the globe –

only then we’ll be having fun,

beneath this sun.

  1. Sigh. And sadly some people are having fun or making money (which is their idea of fun) from the current insanities.
