    dotsThe Panacea for The Guiltdots

    When did it happen ¿?

    When did we relinquish our conscience
    And turn our eyes to our own individual comfort
    When was it, we settled back in our armchairs
    And stuffed our faces
    While children starved to death elsewhere

    When did we become so cold
    So far removed from our humanity
    So completely divorced from our heart

    When did we become so sick

    Which turn did we take
    And down what dark alley way
    To lead us to this complicity of disgusting wealth
    When did all the burgers
    And all the fast food solutions
    Become different from the final solution

    We accept murder
    As if it were beyond our control
    We excuse ourselves
    Behind a plethora of apathetic veils
    And yet
    We are ripped open
    Left bleeding and dieing
    But still Hollywood keeps us entertained
    And keeps us laughing

    So when was it, when did we become so dis-effected
    By the suffering of people
    Did we see far too much of it in films
    Did when then just disassociate ourselves
    As we do, when we watch TV

    Did we say, it’s just not real
    And then give ourselves the panacea for our guilt
    Shot in the arm and jacked up in the brain
    While chasing the dragon of our own blatant and willful

    Where and when did we lose our souls
    Our love, our compassion and our self-determination
    Did we relinquish control
    Did we yawn and say ho hum
    When the death screams of the innocent
    Assaulted our ears

    Did we hand over all we are
    To these corrupt, sick and psychotic governments
    Who’s roll it was
    To serve us

    When did we become so weak
    And so pathetic
    So wrapped upon the paths of hate
    That we forgot love
    Forgot care, forgot who we are
    And became so small

    And so small
    Is who we are

    When did we become this travesty of our own humanity
    How did we lose ourselves
    How were we fooled so completely
    Into thinking that we, ourselves, are the enemy

    When did we become so sick

    “It is no measure of health, to be well adjusted, to a profoundly sick society”

      I ask the same questions every damn day. That sounds like it would be better spoken through a microphone on some podium in front of a crowd.
