In a world so divided through terror and loss, no one takes notice of what could be the cost. We divide by ethnicity, race, and religion; until hatred clashes like nuclear fission. We do it to ourselves, yet blame everyone else. Have we not taken notice it's not good for our health? It's taught to our children, through acts of our own. With subconscious intentions a death toll we atone. Now children are dying, we need someone to blame. Cause if we look at ourselves we feel nothing but shame. We'll talk for a moment, then let it subside. Then forget until we hear of another genocide. We'll start our debates, each side screams about guns, and we'll argue as if it's all in good fun. But people are dying, and it's not just one. Children are dying! And yet nothing is done. So speak with your politics, find the highest bid. Because what are the odds that the next one is your kid?
