Just a Bit of Paradise

Just heard the news today,

another bomb blew someone away,

there were some angry men –

I think around ten.

 

They blew them straight,

to Timbuktu,

I don’t think they were ready to go –

at least they didn’t say so.

 

It was better for the bum,

sitting on the corner,

the noise and confusion –

made him think it was another celebration.

 

While he was toasting,

the police trying to make some peace,

out of another senseless mess,

people just shaking their heads,

while for others tears flowed.

 

As I say another prayer to the Lord,

I’m so very tired of trying to understand it all

and a sad world,

that has lost so many screws –

through all the centuries.

 

It’s still the same old world,

that has long been turning,

but now it’s slightly akilter

and I wonder who will save it.

 

So enough already I say,

give me a peaceful day,

let me just drift away –

in a paradise made for two.

 

I leave this noisy and mad world behind,

in our little bit of paradise,

where songbirds sing in chorus

and spring buds are ready to bloom.

 

Sit back and give me some room,

let’s hold hands and dream upon the clouds,

let no one disturb us here –

in our little bit of paradise.

      Thank you, Phyllis. It suddenly became inspired after nearby in Sebring, Florida someone went into a bank and shot 5 people dead just like that.
