Where Do We Go From Here? (Poem)
Where do we go from here?
by Dave Tanguay
Why are we told we must persevere?
We do not learn from our past mistakes!
Is living for survival - what it truly takes?
To live for today, and the hell with tomorrow
We live for ourselves, believing life is only borrowed
Yet we want to be part of society’s madness
Even if it means living our lives - with such sadness
We convict criminals for crimes, they have committed
Yet dropping bombs on women and children - is legally permitted
Take those bums out of Washington, who brain wash us all
Lock them all up in a cell, see how long - before they bawl
Give them all - a one-way ticket to hell,
And provide them all, with a happy farewell
Let us live our lives with love and dignity
Something not learned by politicians - in our universities
