Hiding our faces like Ostrich to claim all is well

Hiding our faces like Ostrich to claim all is well
In fact in reality, are in burning inferno like Hell
Still we are not doing anything over it to prevail
Shock to see nobody is bother, I see 10 feet swell

Still living like blinds, nothing to worry all is well
If have no eyes, you can feel at least water of swell
But no, who cares, I'm enjoying my life without fail
If such are our attitudes soon will be near edge of hell

As humans, can't do that, unity is the way to live well
Let's link like a chain to live in all weather; and swell
Other ways of living is living like animals prone to fail
I see around stink of it, I smell everywhere dirty smell

Being rational live together like living in paradise cell
This is the only preferred way to go behind without fail
As a sensible, if do that, sensed beauty of paradise well
This way we can solve all our problems not being in hell

God forbid if keep going in wrong direction, we may fail
But being Scholars if we think our problems we may nail
In 21st Century why we're not doing that, train may derail

Guidelines have been issued calling U back roses to smell
