This world

 The town was so quiet there was no one about

 Just a couple of kids who were starting to shout

 Hey their mister can you give us a penny

 No said the man I haven’t got any

Were starving and cold the children did cry

 The man himself hungry did turn a blind eye

 He had nothing to give them what could he do

 Just tell his story to all of you

Once life was prosperous the future was bright

 Till along came greed bitterness and blight

 Soon there was nothing for our daughters and sons

 Only hatred and ugliness from the things we had done

Now we pay the consequences and we reap what we sow

 However on this earth did we stoop so low

 Only now with lessons learnt can we repair all the wrong

 And maybe in time our lives can be strong

The moral of this story is that we might learn

 How to love one another and show some concern

 This worlds not forever don’t ever forget

 Don’t give hate a chance or cause for regret
