COMPLACENCY

Has the media turned us into emotional Zombies? Come read Fiona’s great post – COMPLACENCY

wordsworthsmuse

EVERYONE CRIES THAT THE WORLD IS A MESS,

AS WE SIT IN OUR ALMIGHTY GLASS HOUSES,

REFUSING TO ACCEPT OUR OWN FAILINGS,

WE CREATE A GROUP THINK,

PASSING THE BUCK,

MAKING THE PROBLEM NOT OURS,

SUFFERING AND TORTURE, 

 NOT OUR PROBLEM,

STARVATION AND BOMBS,

NOT OUR PROBLEM,

THIS COULD BE ANY OF US, AT ANY TIME, 

JUST A LOST JOB AWAY,

A DEATH , A SUICIDE,

BEING IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME,

TO EAGER TO ACCEPT COMPLACENCY,

COMPARTMENTALISING THE POSSIBILITY,

INSTEAD OF HELPING, DENIAL,

NOT MY PROBLEM.

REFUSING TO BELIEVE THE EXISTENCE OF A WORLD FOREIGN TO OUR WAY OF LIFE.

FIONA
