Offended yet?

I am tired of treading carefully

And minding my p’s & q’s,

Just in case I might start offending you,

This life we see of suffering

Hate and xenophobia

Is a world that I detest,But you have never enquired

Am I offended yet?

Well yes I am offended when I see animals shot dead

By trophy hunters who have no compassion left

And yes I am offended by vivisectionists

Who carry out pointless experiments

Time and time again.

Yes I am offended by the way you pollute our earth

And rape as well as exploit it for everything it’s worth

And yes I am offended by the plastic in the sea

And the the fact that we are dumb enough to kill off all the bees.

I am offended by the dead children

Laying in the bombed out rubble that was their home,

Blown to bits by people who remotely killed them with a drone

And I am offended by extremists

Who want to blow us all to bits

But I am especially offended by people

Who don’t give a shit about any of this.
