So blind are we
To this misery
This suffering
And sacrifice
This vice
This blasphemy
Of whatever standards held
For years
This ignorance
We see
We are
We know
And yet we don’t
So blithe are we
In lack of care
To hear
These cries
To see
This death
To feel
This pain
With every step
So insouciant
Not a hint
How foolish can we be
To this misery
How foolish
Very apparently
With this insouciant state of mind.
