Has The Whole Darn World Gone Mad

Addressing life from a little girls perspective...

"HAS THE WHOLE DARN WORLD GONE MAD"

I'm just a young girl in a very large world

of pollution, confusion, illusion, with no retribution,

tick tock, times running out, leaders of the world

are losing their clout,

distressed! is how I'm feeling living in a world of hate and killing.

Children of the future with blood on their hands, killing oneanother makes them think there a man.

Poverty! has stricken the people, making them resort to doing things illegal.

Get real! stop living in a fantasy, give the world back there long lost dignity

children, should be happy not sad, has the whole darn world gone mad? The whole darn world gone mad.

People cross continents to be in a war, I know of people dieing right out my front door, homeless and hunger in the land of the free and their still producing children into poverty.

Welfare! is more than just a state of mind, some of their recipients are from the unemployment lines,

I'm not laughing I don't think its a joke, the whole darn worlds gone broke, the whole darn world is gone broke.

I don't have to be told not to be in a gang, my times to precious for that kind of thing, the game called house, no I'll never play, little girls like me don't go out that way.

Kissing and hugging No! I'm not the one, raping education is my kind of fun, other peoples misfortune makes some of us glad, has the whole darn world gone mad, the whole darn worlds gone mad.
