The Slippery Slopes

It’s a slippery slope we’re sliding on

Considering that we share the world we’re biding on—

One city’s flood

Is another city’s mud

It may not be that a tsunami begins by butterfly wings

But it can be triggered by so many other things

Depending on where our thoughts have gone—

Or who it is we are depending on—

Will we do what is right and choose to be kind

Or be self-serving and pretend to be blind?

Will we recognize what’s wrong and know it?

Or will we do what is right and show it?

Be careful with promises and threats

Be suspicious of false bets

Too much ego can take us too far to turn back

Too much anger can lay down the track

To a destination that leads only one way

To a place where we all must pay.

But it’s still it’s not too late

To work together to overturn hate

And overlook all things that divide us

And bring out all the good that’s inside us.
