I sit and pondered and stewed on life
over my cup of strong tea,
I sit here and I wonder
to myself why is it we believe,
everything we are told
via the media and TV,
run by oligarchs who are exploiting you and me.
I sit here pondering as my tea stews
why are we as gullible as this
do we not give ourselves enough credit,
for being able to think for ourselves.
Why is this I ask myself
while sipping on my cup of tea,
that we are capable of following
oligarchs words like sheep,
we have the intelligence I am sure of that
to do our own thinking,
and to realise that xenophobia is wrong
and hating is for the weak,
that there is no place in our lives
for jealousy and envy
and that all that glitters is not always gold
and our addiction to material greed,
is an attachment that will see us
and all humanity crumble to dust
and then be lost to the ground.
These were some thoughts over a cup of tea,
I had in my head and I required no one else to answer them
for I am self taught and self led.
