Global State of Play

THERE ARE MANY KEYS TO OUR WORLD

BUT SOME DOORS SHOULD REMAIN CLOSED

NOWADAYS THEY BEGIN TO UNFURL

WITH MANY OF US LEFT COMATOSED

BY A WAR THAT HAS BEGUN

NOT AMONGST COUNTRIES AGAINST EACH OTHER

IN A BLAZE LIKE THE RISING OF A NEW SUN

WE’RE IN A WHOLE LOT OF BOTHER

NOT BY PLANES FLYING OVERHEAD

NOT BY MISSILES FALLING FROM THE SKY

BUT BY THE NEIGHBOUR WE THOUGHT WAS DEAD

BY THE NEIGHBOUR WHO ‘WOULDN’T HURT A FLY’

‘BE ON THE WATCH’ THE BIBLE TELLS US

WE DON’T KNOW THE HOUR OR THE DAY

IN THESE COMMENTS WE HAVE TO PLACE TRUST

THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT IS ALREADY IN DECAY

ANARCHY MIGHT BE A STRONG WORD

BUT HOW FAR WILL SOME PEOPLE GO

MANKIND’S RECORD IS LOUD AND MUST BE HEARD

AN EXAMPLE OF THIS MADNESS, THEY HAVE ALREADY

SHOWN

SOME SAY RELIGION IS ONE OF THOSE ‘KEYS’

CAUSE OR CURE? THE DECISON UP TO YOU

WE SHOULD ALL BE ON OUR KNEES

PRAYING FOR AN ANSWER, FOR SOMETHING NEW

PEACE AND THE DOVE, ARE IN THE DISTANCE

A FAINT, ALMOST NEVER ENDING DREAM

WE MUST, WE HAVE TO BE PERSISTENT

FOR OUR VERY LIFE ON EARTH, IS WHAT I MEAN

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST NO LONGER APPLIES

THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM THIS KIND OF WAR

MILLIONS INDISCRIMINATELY SUFFER, MANY MORE WILL DIE

NOT EVEN THE SKIES CAN SAVE US, EVEN IF WE SOAR

IS RELIGION AND OUR GOD TO BE OUR SAVIOUR, OUR SHIELD

YOUR FAITH IS YOURS TO DECIDE

BUT WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR ALL OF US TO YIELD

LET’S HOPE THERE IS A PLACE TO HIDE

CAN THIS BE STOPPED, WILL THERE BE AN END?

WE CAN’T DIFFUSE AN ALREADY EXPLODED BOMB…

WE MUST NEVER ACQUIESCE, HOWEVER, NEVER BEND

LIVE OUT OUR LIVES WITH APLOMB

MANKIND HAS SUFFERED AND SURVIVED

THROUGHOUT THOUSANDS OF YEARS

AN ANSWER IS A TRAIN WAITING TO ARRIVE

AT THE STATION THAT KNOWS NO FEAR

THAT TRAIN IS FULL OF HUMAN BEINGS

YES, GOD-FEARING, LOVING PEOPLE

LIVING LIKE WE SHOULD – LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING

OUR CHILDREN NOT HAVING TO WALK THROUGH TREACLE

SIDESTEPPING, POISONS, GASES AND EXPLOSIONS

BECOMING OVERLY CONSCIOUS OF A RACE OR PERSONS

THAT IN ITSELF IS A TERRIFYING NOTION

THAT THEY ARE LEFT TO CAST ASPERSIONS

HUMAN NATURE CAN KICK IN

SOME SAY WE’RE FIGHTING A NEVER ENDING WAR

PATIENCE CAN BE WORN VERY THIN

AS THEY LIVE – YET ATTACK THE DEMOCRATIC CORE

A DOUBLE STANDARD, LIKE AN AGENT IN THE WW1 OR TWO

SLEEPING WITH IT’S ENEMY WITH A SMILE

THIS HAS TO BE HANDLED LIKE A COO

TO GET THEM AFAR, RUNNING A MILE..

HOPE AND TRUST IN FRIENDS, FAMILY OR YOUR FAITH

YOU HOLD IT TIGHT, LIKE MOTHER DOES A BABY GIRL

MAKING YOU FEEL COMFORTED, SOUND AND SAFE

AS YOU CONTINUE THE DAILY FIGHT, IN THE ‘WAR OF OUR

WORLD’…
