Missing the Point

By Bruce Clifford

Are we missing the point
Have we gone too far
Is everything out of sorts
Took a drive in my car

Are we over the edge
Do we reach the slow down
Can we get off this ride
Took a drive in to town

Have we heard too much on the news today
Itís the same old story in the same old way
Have we had enough of the lies and hate
Are we giving up as we are compelled to run away

Are we missing the point
Have we landed upside down
Is everything out of whack
Are we stuck on the ground
All I hear is this sound

Have we heard too much on the news today
Itís the same old story in the same old way
Have we had enough of the lies and hate
Are we giving up as we are compelled to run away

Are we lost and afraid
Have we reached the void
Can we start this day over again
Another lie and a ploy

Are we missing the point
Have we missed all the signs
Can we get off this track
We keep falling behind

©2/3/19 Bruce Clifford
