Happy Thought

When you think of the woes
That this world knows,
The dangers that face
The whole human race,
From that germ salmonella
To that bin Laden fella,
From the fears about warming
And the increase of storming
To the water we drink
At our own kitchen sink…
Indeed, on reflection
(And prayer for protection),
Just the fact we’re still living
Is cause for thanksgiving.
