After reading and watching some harrowing footage from around the world I wrote this, less art more venting.

The murder of earth and her children, we shall watch them die yes? Just turn off your television. We can not extend our empathy overseas so we are not accountable for inaction right? Sit comfortably my loves, keep tutting and spewing quotes robotically from the sun newspaper, you’ll sound intelligent for a moment and like you give half a shit.  What you know about the world can be googled can’t it? But you’ve never felt the agony of desperation nor shall you and so you should be grateful every second, but who has time for that! Soaps aren’t going to watch themselves! Why stress about living your life when you can watch someone else live one equally as depressing.  Turn your mind as I turn mine now, but much too late, your brothers and sisters bleed, burn and kill in a land that May as well be a different planet!  Blame religion, blame politics but I’ll blame myself for apathy, for being able to pause someones despair with the press of a button. But the earth will die as liberty fails, as we with power fail those that have none. This is the murder that haunts me
