we live in an age where violence is glorified
relentlessly covered in news
lovingly caressed in media
and wonder that so many die

we live in a time when sensibility is stunned
remorselessly pushed to the side
heedlessly defined as hysteria
and wonder that so many cry

we reap the harvest of our complacent desires
hearts bleeding without even knowing
hideously calloused and bruised
and wonder our eternal why
