Better Man

I used to care a lot

About politics

Global warming

Energy Policy

Asylum seekers

I read Noam Chomsky;

John Pilger, Michael Moore

But I never went to a protest

Not out of apathy

I just never knew anyone

Who cared about the same things I did

With age I feel

The passion fading away

And think

I’ve got problems enough of my own

I stopped watching ‘Q and A’

And saving energy

And for a time

Replaced it with caring passionately

About the friends I’ve made

And helping them break

The cycle of addiction and crime

Now that’s fading too

And all I really care about

Is freedom and family

And enjoying my time on planet earth

Strangely somehow these days

I feel like a better man

Then when I had political quotes

Pinned to my wall
