I Couldn't Care Less

I don’t give a damn about whales

Elephants? Not my prime concern

Pollution may be rising in the sea

And in the air

But I really don’t care


Where disease is rife

And children live on the streets

Squalid lives are spent

There’s war but no relief

But I really don’t care


Soon we’ll all be buried beneath

Piles of our own waste

Chasing the next bright new thing

On our globalised rat race

But I really don’t care


I have enough to eat

Animals are simply meat

No ozone? Good I’ll catch a tan

As I sit in a traffic jam

Does anyone really care?

Well said.
Even though we all claim to care, in the end we just want what is the next thing.
I posted a poem called "Homeless".
But in truth when one approaches me I feel guilty but mostly worried that he or she will do harm to me.
Good writing.
