The World Is in a Lifeboat Unaware

The World is in a Lifeboat Unaware

The world is in a lifeboat unaware,

That thought, speech and deed must pay the fare,

To repair past errors without despair;

Otherwise, the world is in a lion’s lair


With storms raging here and everywhere,

With many, yet, complacent and unaware;

Time is running out of the hourglass’ fare;

Yet, it can be overturned with care.


Clouds, storms, hurricanes, tornadoes do snare;

Yet, the challenges can be met, if we dare,

Not to capitulate to lies but expose them bare;

For that we need the strength of courage, so rare.


Then take up the clear, noble task to tear

The distortions of truth to shreds and repair!
