Just Think

Just Think


Just think how serene life would have been

Without Brexit and Trump to make us so mean!

We’d be surging ahead with elation instead

Of shuffling along with feet made of lead;

We’d be smiling and whistling with teeth all glistening

Instead of shouting and screaming with hackles all bristling.

If only the lies had not promised relief

From the austerity robbing joy like a sniggering thief.

If only the racism and fear had not robbed us of cheer

And caused the specter of fascism to once more draw near.

Just think what our lives might have become

If we’d all benefitted from that better income.

Just think if the division now sitting at our gate

Was unity and not this ugly snarl of hate.

Just think………………
