“What a World”
A woman sits in her house and let the newspapers pile up
A little girl swings back and forth imagining she’s a bird
A man drives from state to state
A farmer herds his cows
A mother holds her crying baby
A husband leaves his family
A boy goes from house to house feeling lost and alone
A family leaves the place they once called home
A student stays up all night cramming for his test
I look out my window as the sun sets and think to myself,
“What a world we live in”
