Ignorance by SheaRyhai

Poetry By: Shea Ryhai

I think the poem speaks clearly enough. The Greatest Evil is when Good Men do Nothing.

.: Ignorance :.


A bloody nose, a hateful word,

reactions that are so absurd.

Lashing out without a care,

just because your life's not fair.

A wife cheats in her husband's home,

when he thinks she's all alone.

A father yells and throws his fists,

with strength a child can't resist.

One son rapes another's daughter,

a witness see's but doesn't bother.

A student cheats to pass a test,

when others studied instead of rest.

A hungry man must beg for bread,

while petty insults strike his head.

An employee steals from the drawer,

that another will be fired for.

A druggie shoots his mother twice,

because she didn't ask him nice.

A nanny blows smoke in the air,

for an infant girl to share.

A mugger steals a grandma's purse,

his knife did her husband worse.

Some girls marry just to steal,

young men fake love that's not real.

So many mask a callous heart,

laughing as others fall apart.

All for their momentary bliss,

a cold cruel life of Ignorance.
