Fashion dictates that destruction is in,
Where once there were virtues now pride places sin.
A difference of colour is reason to riot.
The thin forced to eat and the fat forced to diet.
The old looking younger, the young looking old,
Forgotten war heroes are left in the cold.
Wars are begun in the name of two gods,
The people if fear of the leaders at odds.
Fame is forgiveness for murder and rape,
The innocent slaughtered, the guilty escape.
Children are filmed as they die of starvation,
The richest of all ask for help from the nation.
A half eaten corpse is fished from a lake,
Now cut to commercials it’s time for a break.
Reach for your coffee, it’s only TV,
With eyes tightly closed there is nothing to see.
