Children dying in chemical gas attacks
how much humanity must these people lack,
to commit such a barbarous crime
do these deaths no even play on their minds.
Do they not see the bodies on the streets
do they not see the people weep,
do not all sides see the games the play
has left countries in abject pain,
destroying cities, destroying towns
destroying lives, is this not profound,
does it make you want to cry
and get angry and raise your voice so high
and demand and end to the endless death,
fighting wars, denying innocents a breath.
Why is the rest of humanity so quiet
why is it not up in arms over the violence,
a few people die through terrorist attacks,
media come out in a total backlash,
throws up it’s hands and cry’s ‘the shame’,
so why is it not the same for other suffering
in other countries, are they not the same as us,
are they entitled to the same coverage,
are they also not human beings too.
Should we not be demanding an end to these deaths,
try to make a stand while there is still something left,
set aside the political games,
it’s all just for power that Syria is in flames,
it does not mean a jot in the mind of child,
who suffers at the genocidal maniacs hands while
Syria burns everyone watches,
nobody even seems to be trying to stop this,
it’s an outrage and shame on our humanity,
that this is persevering in times like these.
