I turn on my t.v. I take a look around, all
I can see, is a world that is turned upside
down.

I watch the evening news, it is looking
pretty dim, one shot here, a dozen dead there,
the outlook of it all is really all quite
grim.

A pusher on the street, he's selling kid's
that drug, another life that is lost,
another grave that is dug.

Then there are the guns, you can get them
anywhere, but they fall into a child's hands,
that will use them on a dare.

A world that is bent on self destruction,
doing a deed of deaths construction.

It's said, it's done, nothing else to think,
if we keep going at this rate, we will
simpley be extinct!!!!

Very well done, Richard! So sad, but true that this is more and more society's reality.

I don't watch much t.v. anymore. It's too depressing and I can do depressing on my own. I do catch snippets of things and it is very sad to know that things are not getting any better.
