ups & downs


i wonder at life’s ups and downs
there seem to be a lot
of things that cause us laughs and frowns
and make us lose the plot

how is it that we fight and kill
and blow each other up?
yet sometimes risk our lives to save
a kitten or a pup?

our job is not to reason why
or mysteries here to solve
no matter if we live or die
the earth will still revolve
