Lemmings, apparently, will suffer mass destruction,
Mindlessly they copy, a careless guide’s instruction,
Now we seem to follow the Lemmings poor tuition
As we ignore the craziness of our own position.
We let our children see the things, that used to make us blush
No time to teach a grounding, everything’s a rush
Only I-pad games, it seems, now fit the new ‘street cred’
Videos replacing the old ‘story before bed’.
Television just promotes the money making art,
Argument pervades the daily Soaps in every part,
Guns appear in every game with violent whoops beside
None wish to be creative, nothing to keep, with pride.
Then onward with temptations, the dire computer games
No decent conversation, just text and coded names
Mostly barely readable, the tweets and texts galore
Like addiction always, wanting more and more and more.
So, hardly surprising then, the Lemming attitude
Develops mighty passions, p’raps sex, and humour crude
But worse, the love of violence, guns and cruelty
The consequence ignored; we should, but do not see.
So potential Lemmings, cast off the herd instinct
Consider what you do, take a moment just to think,
Would the World approve, of what you want to be?
Why stay a careless Lemming, without the sense to see?
