The Would and Should

Airwaves buzzing with atrocities,
national debt is at a record high.
Virtue is exchanged for fun and ease.
what future is there for you and I?

Like the fog, dense in early morning,
vision is all skewed and vaguely dim.
Do we avoid or do we heed the warning,
see possibilities as gone or merely grim?

A new day begins in our small corner;
what difference we can make is small,
but do we set ourselves up as scorner,
what small efforts may a woe forestall?

Beyond the goals of men with might in mind,
there are those who seek the common good.
Every wind however turned can find,
in God's hands, the better "should" and "would".
