My Birthday Poem

My Birthday Poem:

Born during a world war,

Then the Korean Conflict

Then Vietnam,

Grew up during the ‘good’ times,

Colonialism in the Americas, Africa, Asia,

Racism at home.


We thought we’d change it all,

And we did do a lot.

Civil Rights, peace activism, ecology.


Now, I look at this angry country,

At this sick earth, and I wonder,

Is it that we are more sensitive?

Or growing more stupid?
