A Poisoned Society

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 18:57 -- shursey

Twitter, phones, and facebook

simply kill social skills

And nothing is more unhealthy

than the growing dependency on pills

 

Medication is meant

to improve people's health

When in reality,

it only boosts a company’s wealth

 

Depression increasingly

poisons the head

And tell me,

why can the gay still not wed?

 

Bombs are plenty

Food is short

There are increasing types

of drugs to snort

 

Oil spills have produced

anger and fights

Yet the only worry about the ocean

is getting shark bites

 

Our forests are vanishing,

our animals are too

But the magazines are filled

with Michael Kohrs and Jimmy Choo

 

We pay no attention

We simply don’t care

Those who want change

are much, much too rare
