Good Riddance, Earth

When simplicity,

Is blanketed by extravagance.

When intricacy,

Shadowed by cost.

When fads

Consume tradition

When a white flag,

Is no longer the sign of the lost.



When virginity

Is followed by striking astonishment,

When the worst worry of a leader,

Features the color of his skin,

When popularity

Roots from name brands

And no human being,

Even slightly fears the result of sin.



When joy,

In every case, is shaded by envy,

When the use of words

Is falsely trusted

When text,

Becomes a verb.

And when the severance of a human head,

Is weakened by “busted”.



When suicide… And sex… And weed,

Are advertised,

When half of the world’s population is at war,

When reality,

Is plausibly questioned

When you haven’t worked hard,

Without feeling sore



When optimism,

Is alien

When the broken hearts,

Are encouraged to write a song.

When education,

Is blinded by instincts.

None can deny how terribly,

We must have gone wrong…
