The new deal

by davebarclay1954

What’s going on here today
When no-one makes any sense
Or is it just my addled brain
Which seems to have caught the train

It never seemed that bad to me
When, as a child, I wandered free
These days, so it seems, no-one’s safe
With evil lurking behind every door

Shooting in schools or in our parks
Bombs at the finish line of a race
Drive bys every other day
Was it meant to be this way?

If I could do one thing for all
It would be to destroy all weapons
Hatred wouldn’t be allowed
If you like me have had enough
Cry we won’t take it anymore
And shout it so very loud
