Death scrolls on the news ticker,
We can’t feel their pain.
Vaccinated from the world
We live in ignorant bliss.
Do we really care?
Our own are an afterthought
In our decade wars.
How truly cold we’ve become
Trading life for apathy.
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
I’ve come to hate that news ticker.
Me too, I’m with you on that. Thanks Charles.
Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
SING IT—SING OUT OUR SHAME—SING OUT OUR LOSS!!! YOU ARE THE CONSCIENCE OF A FALLING WORLD.
Well now that is a tall order to fill, but thank you anyway for the comment and as always, the re-blog.
Just reacting to the poem content….I guess I got in a punchy mood—a little too dramatic—SORRY! 🙂
No need for apologies…sometimes you have to just let it out. 🙂
So sadly true …
It sure is, thank you Chris.
