Poetry – This world is run

This World is Run

This world is run on how many books you’ve read.

Those that have read more are better.

This world is run on how many miles you’ve run.

Those that run further are better.

This world is run on how many exams you’ve passed.

Those that have passed more are better.

This world is run on how many meetings you’ve chaired.

Those that have chaired more are better.

This world is run on how many promotions you’ve had.

Those that are promoted higher are better.

This world is run on how many faces you’ve punched.

Those that have punched more are better.

This world is run on how many people you’ve fucked.

Those that have fucked more are better.

This world is run on how many strangers you’ve stabbed.

Those that have stabbed more are better.

This world is run on how many people you’ve shot.

Those that have shot more are better.

This world is run on how much money we’ve amassed.

Those that have amassed more are better.

This world is run on how many ‘things’ you own.

Those that own more are better.

This world is run into the ground.

Opher 12.6.09

This World is Run

This world is not run on intelligence, compassion or love

It has no care, respect or fairness

This world has become a race

This world has become what we make it

We are sometimes stupid, cruel and vicious

Perhaps it is time to respect those that do less well?

I'd like to hear from you...
