A Twisted World

What a twisted world we live in,
A world of pain and hurt.
The planet knows no boundary,
Or way to clean it's dirt.

It picks on blameless victims,
In efforts to be clean,
A must for evolution,
To keep the seasons green.

But human life is taken,
In the wrongness of a way,
As if the world cannot decide--
The dark or light of day.

That's why the good do suffer,
The bad they will remain,
Because the world is faulty,
And viewed with such disdain.

I hate this world we live in,
It really is unfair.
It takes away the things I love,
With scant regard or care.

  It really is a twisted world.
