A Word from Ferlinghetti

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind some people dying
all the time
or maybe only starving
some of the time
which isn't half bad
if it isn't you

-Lawrence Ferlinghetti

I have a poem somewhere (currently in storage in Birmingham) called "Life is a Nice Place, but I Wouldn't Want to Live There". It's great. If you can find it online, you'd enjoy it.
