Thank you so much for this concept: I need a regular supply of these to keep my rhymes coming.
IT'S NOT SAFE!
It's not safe to stick your finger,
into your stoma or to linger
on that thought for very long,
because for some this may seem wrong.
But it's not safe to breathe the air,
because some people do not care
and have polluted it so much
it's something lungs should never touch.
It is not safe to walk the street
because some people you might meet
could be there, so it's been said
to do you harm or make you dead.
It is not safe to fly a plane,
to ride a bike or catch a train,
for all these means of transport will
sometimes end up with a kill.
It is not safe to drink water
or, at least I think you ought'er
consider just how clean it is
before you drink and come amiss.
It is not safe to lay your head
Down upon your comfy bed,
and if you need a reason why
this is where most people will die.
It is not safe to vaccinate,
or this is what some people state,
but I would feel I was a ‘dick'
if I refused to have the prick.
It is not safe to be alive,
for in that state it seems we strive
to do all sorts of stupid stuff
until we're dead or had enough.
