We are sinking fast........

We are sinking fast........

A Poem by Dawn

The crazy parents collecting
their kids in their
massive 4x4 vehicles,
Smart cars and other
in the taxis that are
lined up for them.

Parked on the double
yellow lines right outside
the school gates.

Actually blocking
the pavement where the
traffic guard
helps them to cross.

No consideration.
Bumped up on the kerbs.
Some in PJs,
others swearing like troopers
at other parents.
The kids standing around
like a gang.
Watching the carry-on
going on between
these two parents.

The school Lollipop guy
trying so very hard
to do his job.
And to actually help
the children cross
the road.

But some crazy driver
is like a looney blasting
past the school
doing 60
miles an hour.

Welcome to Great Britain.
That is not so great any more!.

A bunch of young lads are
around the corner near
some local shops.
Having a fight.
Fists and feet flying.

And another poor kid
Is laying in a massive pool
of blood as he was stabbed
by a fellow pupil.
Close by a teacher is also
stabbed trying to break up
that said fight.

Folk are shocked screaming
is heard.
And sirens are blasting as
the police and ambulance
arrive on the scene.

Tragic as this is the modern
world. No respect. no love,
and no consideration.

The world is corrupt and sad.
And the younger generation
are growing up into this
a bitter twisted world before them.

And the authorities that rule us
mock and do nothing properly
to sort this sickness on this land
for good.

The jails are overflowing
the systems are fucked
and no one wins.

Who actually does anything
good for the majority of
normal citizens?

The answer is no one.

Great Dawn. You have described the present state of Britain well. I don't think its like that everywhere all of the time but I often go out during the school run and i can see exactly what you are describing. In some cases it's up to individuals to consider what they are doing but often our government should be taking the lead.
Writing about these things and sharing is a good first step.
regards,
Alan

Maybe I shouldn't laugh at this since you made such a good point. But I found your satire here absolutely laughable. I think the same and this made my day.


Thanks Dawn.
