Broken World

We live in a world

Where selfless deeds and good intentions

Are noteworthy occasions

Whilst cruel behaviour and selfish actions

Are accepted as the norm

 

We live in a world

Where “Look after number one”

Is the rule so many people follow

Ignoring the plight

Pushing out of sight

Anybody needing help

Call them lazy

Say they’re only looking for handout

 

We live in a world

Where hoarders of material wealth

Are celebrated and rewarded

Whilst beyond the glare of the spotlight

Those with nothing

Whether through lack of opportunity

Their position in society

Or selfless acts of charity

Continue to suffer

 

We live in a broken world

In which those with the power

And the money to fix it

Wish to only see worsened

So that they can reap the benefit
