Billions spent destroying our world
to harness energy just to waste it, while power
is something many have never even tasted,
Exterminating entire species, raping the land
so we can drive unnecessarily huge vehicles poisoning the air, overcompensating for nothing
just to get from here to there to ultimately nowhere,
While the sight of a car for many is a thing most rare.
Lights left burning at all hours without care
while a child learns to read by the faint glow
of a worn-down homemade candle.
How did we get to be like this?
Turning away, having nothing to say, assuming,
some day, everything will turn out to be okay.
Ignorance is Bliss.. .. .. .. ..Ful.. .. .. .. ..Ly
Blissfully blissfully blissfully... obscene.
