Striped thoughts of black and white,

What overlap is there, if any,

Who declares the morals of the time,

Who is good enough?


Is it  right to see the people suffer,

To see the children starve,

Is it just to see the sick die?

Why? Why is this us?


Why do we have to see the way the world burns?
