Where are we going?

Each day, we read, how we’re, so smart

We invent and make more things, 

So if we are, let’s play our part,

Make sure the work no evil brings.

Progress is the general call,

Most has a value true,

But equally our minds can be

Blinded by the selfish view.

Again it seems self-centred greed

Towards disaster leads,

The Earth is warming, by and by,

We’ll ‘bite the hand that feeds’. 

Each one can make a difference,

There is no time to spare

It’s for our children’s children

That we should now show care.
