A hex on you, a hex on me, a hex on us all
A hex on you, me hearties,
You pirates of romance
You scuffle, kerfuffle,
Yet remain incuriously blank.
You contemplate carnage from a-far,
Your screens flicker in your house, your car,
Babies dying of hunger
Now that's a fancy free-falling fact.
But dont you worry: your complacency is intact.
Keep quiet, in the background, no whistle blowing for you, no standing up for others, no fighting back.
So, slink yourself down in your slough of despair
And convince yourself, the world just ain't there.
Tweet and post and pretend you can share
But in your heart of hearts, you know you just don't care.
