Humanity is steadily going downhill
Look at the costs of the military and law enforcement,
They are astronomical,
Yet, people say how good everyone is,
Are they kidding me?
Humanity is steadily going downhill,
It is horrible to say,
But a clear reality,
COVID-19 has taken over humanity,
You can't do this, you can't do that,
The face mask is a requirement everywhere,
Why do people bother in procreating?
Having to raise children in this world,
It is messed in so many ways,
Believe what you want here,
This is how I feel,
Take care for now,
Be good and safe,
May a new day arise with optimism on the horizon.
There is no such thing as a truly nice person
