Congratulations.

Congratulations.

Born bad, intrinsically bad, screaming demanding.
Self-centred baby, need is all, self is want,
incessant hunger driving, searching.
Eat everything, Then shit, then sleep.

Human being, going where?

Born good, intrinsically good, love giving, trusting,
innocent, free wide-eyed uninhibited wonder.
Simple needs, content and warm, accessing new ways
To absorb the world, your world, to connect with life.

Human being, going where?

Born bad, grow into good, show me how to
move from greed, from I, me, you, you, me
What’s true; us? Watch for signs, how to grow,
how to love, how to share, to lose self-ish

Human being, going where?

Born good, temptations flood daily assaulted by
Screen flicker, ideas quicker, sugar, fast, pretty, bright,
how to tell greed from need, light from dark.
Resistance seems futile, there-there-don’t-cry

Human being, going where?

Born bad, profit leads, consumer feeds, valued skills.
Anger fuels, hate works, clamber up the chain of waste.
Glory condones, justified killing, hate versus hate,
successful wanker/banker steals hay while the sun kills.

Human being, going where.

Born good, offers love, weak fool, truth tells,
feels pain, looks insane, creator not appropriator.
Not a killer, prey for the hunter, slave to the rich.
conscience stinging. Poppies are blood.

Human being, going where?

Born bad, the insatiable badge wearing zealot.
Full of pride, always right, loves the patriotic fight.
Condemning love as weakness, freedom as chaos,
difference as danger and defending lies till death.

Human beings, going where?

Born good, tears flow for the oppressed and lonely
Stands in defiance to be cut-down-trodden, scorned.
Show the world, how to love how to give with peaceful courage,
how to encourage equality and reason, love versus hate.

Human being, going where?

Born good, born bad, born as raw material,
shaped by a lottery, what are the odds?
What will you do? What will they learn?
What will you teach the child, born into your care?

Human being, going where?
