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.
