Poetry – Live More Wisely

Live More Wisely


It’s not a lack of money.

It’s not a lack of space.

It’s just the way we use it

That’s the tragic disgrace.


We need to be less greedy.

We need to live more wisely.

We need to do less harm.

We need much more equality.


We’re destroying all the land.

We’re killing everything,

So that a small minority

Can go living like a king.


We need much more respect,

Much more humility,

Much more compassion

Far less futility.
