There’s a war

raging

All around us

But we are

Unaware

of it

Immune

to it

 

Because we don’t even

acknowledge it.

 

Our privilege

Supersedes

Our ability to fall that

“low”

 

Our social conventions

Forbid us

To be that

“depressing”

 

We’re creating a bunch of “citizens” with tools

to eradicate

these issues

but not armed

with the

sympathy

to do so.
