Where is the leader for our day
who will history put forth
one always comes along they say
who by his actions proves his worth

And how does one define love
is it fate or merely chemistry
or someone sent from up above
can any solve this mystery

Why are we put on this earth
is it for purpose or pure chance
when poets give beauty to birth
is it just happy circumstance

Why is it that men fight wars
why do good men turn corrupt
why do some girls turn out whores
why are these questions so abrupt

All these questions, even more
answers sought by all, mayhap
make my old tired brain too sore
I think that I'll just take a nap

How does this theme appeal to you?

And just what were you expecting lol?

I wasn't sure what to expect lol but more questions get asked with no answer ... Tricky title makes you think your going to get one but you get more questions and yes it makes you think !!
