Turmoil

Turmoil

It has been said we are a nation in turmoil
Beset by confusion, upheaval, ferment and unrest
No still waters, everything kept on the boil
Unsure what to do, how to act for the best

The political scene is fraught with agitation
Factions convinced of the merits of their case
No sense of unity within the nation
The clamour of the marketplace

But turmoil is not just in the world external
Our very souls oft engaged in inner warfare
We have lost the desire for love fraternal
Obsessed by self we sink into despair

Would some power bring calmness to the storm
Restore peace where conflict still prevails
Make cool reason once again the norm
Rebalance the constant shifting of the scales
