Through life’s short Journey that can be strenuous
emotions often dominate how we react
possessive and Violence are common tendencies
mar most of our rational actions we make
such as harmony cooperation with genuine care
often is an option that’s not there!
Discipline and self-control not forgetting respect
is often lost when many want to have fun
out for enjoyment excessive drinking with mates
to be in good company with no violent intent
yet some do like to hurt mock and with malice kill
no remorse or hesitation to them another thrill!
Once in a minority this evil scourge is on the rise
who will stop them as these thugs rampage on
the law is limp seemingly unable to stop brutality
these gangs think they can do what they want
fear rules everyone is at risk on our streets today
no longer certain its safe to work or play!
Violence surely is an evolving human abomination
where power and wealth are above contempt
for billions forced into hopelessness and despair
policing for those trying to abide the law
is slowly withdrawn because of financial restraints
disillusioned no point making complaints!
