    -------------------------------------------





    There is no such thing
    As an evil or corrupt person
    There are only misguided
    And ill-informed humans

    And Kimberley is burning diamonds

    The clockwork mechanisms
    Designed to control you
    With their scarcity amidst abundance
    Will tell you life itself is not sustainable

    They’re burning diamonds at Kimberley
    Pumping decilitres of milk into the ground
    Counting your carbon footprints
    While still making their profits from pollution

    Survival remains the only incentive
    Criminality remains the only punishment
    The abomination of this social order
    Is nothing more than the failure of its own intellectual materialism

    And meanwhile Kimberley is burning diamonds

    And while all this is going on
    While the pyramid scheme of living money
    Has our soul on sale
    While you remain a corporate media sponge
    As you fight to breathe
    And fight each other for survival

    Ask yourself this one simple question
    Are we thinking of our children

    Are we placating ourselves with materialistic garbage
    Believing in the obsolete political deceit
    And vein entertainment

    There is only one social order of abundance on this planet

    And that is

    Poverty

    And Kimberley, Kimberley is burning diamonds

      I'm not sure what "burning diamonds" exactly means but I get-it in the broader context.

    But you are DEAD ON with this poem. I've had discussions about how all of our social problems are poverty related. There's no "bad person" gene, there's only people in dire situations stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    We're okay with fighting wars on foreign soils ("spreading freedom"), and fighting "terrorism" where ever it may be. We're okay with fighting the "War" on drugs and mandatory minimums as our prison populations continue to soar. (Pathetic.)

    But...what if we fought a war on poverty?? (GASP!) Oh no, we'd suddenly fall into a Stalinist Socialist oppression....right? (I'm being 100% sarcastic.)

    All the while there's a silent information war going on all around us, and we're being lied to by almost (99%) of everyone and everything, whether inadvertent or intentional.
