Do You Care

Do you care

That I am hurting, that she is confused.

That he is perverting, that they are excused.

Do you hear

The demeaning lies, and the profane noise.

The freshman's cries, and the bully's ploys.

Do you see

The struggling jock, the solitary nerd.

His dad in Iraq, his dreams deterred.

Do you know

That she's a mother, with no spouse.

That her brother, has no house.

Do you care?

Are you there?

If so, where?
