Why does it have to be That everyone in government always lies? Or so it’s told to you and me At every election by each side. Why do so many people have to fight Over resources, when our science Has ways to grow food and clean water Anywhere and anytime day or night? Why does coming together as one human race With one set of laws governing this place Mean sacrificing the security and safety Of what we have already built? Why do so many, so easily believe That their way has to be the best; That it is important to dominate And to destroy all the rest? And why is someone who sees answers So completely unable to succeed In getting anyone to believe?
