A hex on you, a hex on me, a hex on us all

entry picture

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.
