The Apathy of Innocent Blood

the apathy of innocent blood

{a poem}

 

So many bodies of the dead… their blood cries to our deaf ears                              

Our shoes stick and splatter without giving a second thought

 

 

It has been there so long it has become a backdrop to our insanity                                               

We are consumed with many injustices                                                                                              

Yet, their blood covers us like morning dew                                                                                          

It has been there so long it has become part of our nature

 

 

The tools of slaughter are in our hands                                                                                               

As we execute blind obedience to their devices

 

 

So many bodies of the dead… their blood cries to our deaf ears                                                       

Yet, our hearts are dead to our own barbarism

the apathy of innocent blood

 

 

Only God cares
