Our Ignorance

Like small specks in the sky,
We watch things flow by.
 
We laugh, we play, we smile,
but do we ever think for a while?
 
It seems like the no one thinks about how to make things better,
or how write a nice letter.
 
There are so many things that are possible,
but we spend our time being unusable.
 
We no longer see the side of disasters,
but we pay attention to social media and plasters.
 
Do we care about our present day,
About the small children who go out and play?
 
Do we think about the single mothers,
or the rapist who watch all the others?
 
Our leaders could be disloyal,
While our parents toil.
 
We watch our computer screens,
or play on sports teams.
 
But either way is goes,
everyone knows,
 
somewhere behind the happiness,
hides the secrets and foulness.
 
Like small specks in the sky,
We watch things flow by.
 
We laugh, we play, we smile,
but do we ever think for a while?
