Not Another Ranting Poem (The World As I See It)

A Poem by Beautifully Tragic xPoetry Queen

the world through my eyes.


Another scandal in the news today,

All these politicians just looking for play.

To satisfy their darkest desires,

Hoping to never be caught under fire.


Another death in a bloody war,

While people scream how much more.

A king that dines upon his golden throne,

An evil king that should be overthrown.


Another celebrity meltdown,

Surrounded by a vast sea of flashes, they drown.

Sinking further into more mental hell,

Its alright - the crazier they seem, the more pictures they'll sell


Mother Nature demands humanity knows their place,

As she threatens the human world to be replaced.

Melting ice, the ocean grows more vast,

Wicked weather, humanity disappears fast.


Animals suffer a death gripping blow,

Used for pointless fighting just to make more dough.

The beautiful life of our creature world fades,

Forced into extinction by humanity's wicked ways.


Suffering from broken homes, children cry

Suffering poverty or disease knowing one day they may die.

Never knowing what life would bring when grown,

Just trying to survive and make it on their own.


Bombs shedding bloody rain,

Families torn apart and only disaster remains.

A world that suffers, crying too many broken tears.

Surviving on dreams and faith through life's remaining years.

This touches so many topics, I don't even know where to start.
Life in the western world just seem to get more and more complicated and moronic.
Oh how I'd love to be stranded on a deserted island with WiFi. :)
I guess I'll have to settle for trying to ignore everything I can, and make my donation for making things better in my own little scope of people.
When so many people gain from the way this world is, there's no chance for us to change it. :

You have it pegged, and you wrote it well. This is what's going on, some of it probably always has, but mostly things seem to get worse every year! This is what inspired me to write This World and a more hopeful poem, Remember.

You hit on most of the problems. I hold my family close. No choice poor daughter and son had to move back home. We need to look at the good things. I can see the grandchild at will. A outstanding poem. We need honest men with wisdom. I believe with the system in the USA. Only rich and greedy men can run. Could be bad days ahead till we in the USA find a better way to run a country. Thank you.

Oh yes this was simply a thought provoking treat, touching on subjects which we as humans so many times over look for the sake of convenience and ignorance just like most of our world "leaders". If we can even call them that.

Just loved how you brought across all those questions and statements, forcing me and the rest of your readers to sit up and take notice of what you are saying.
I really loved;

"Mother Nature demands humanity knows their place,
As she threatens the human world to be replaced."

What an eye opening line!

Brilliantly written, I really enjoyed this.

Your poem is pointed and will surely nick many nerves. I spend a large part of each day worrying about our country and where it is headed and this poem touches upon many of my greatest concerns.

These poems and stories need to be written.
