Cruelest is the man who sits and says nothing
Stand alone stare with some harrowing message
Or maybe it’s the poorest, crudest of man
Who we all brand as violent, biting at hands
What then of the angry indignant man
The one who feels drained with no moral compass
Moans and groans develops own brand of justice
Then there’s the soldier in all different shapes
Who plunders and kills or kidnaps and rapes
No words for the actions of each head of state
No words for the actions of the man who wields hate
No words for all those who play life with high stakes
Doesn’t life burn you when spending it thinking
So here we all are; consuming and sinking
What defines cruelty in modern macro-society.
Good/evil, judgement in society, social morality, social awareness and consumerism.
