    dotsA Question of Agendadots

    Fear of yourself
    Fear of the nameless faceless

    If it wasn’t so divided
    By wealth and poverty
    Would it seem to need
    Protecting the opulence
    Thought to own
    By a minority who have
    And those who have; none

    Live so in comfortable peace
    While war is waged
    In our name
    To steal the resources
    By which
    All their luxury is made

    In the agenda of scarcity
    On the supermarket shelves
    With all the waste that they create
    Rob the food from out of the mouths
    Of children starving to death

    Dependence on a lie
    The fear of losing
    And like the beggars of the street
    Sleep in the cold and wet
    Seeking temporary shelter
    Amid abundance

    What good are we to each other
    So divided
    By money, status, religion and nationality
    What good are we
    While our global family
    Is suffering
    What good are we
    When all we are
    Just keeps on dieing

    What use are we
    When all we do is fear
    And we are not evolving
    What use are we
    With all this technology
    When we can’t or won’t
    Or think it’s not our fault
    When half the world goes hungry

    Still by the names and the labels
    We fit the agendas
    And the divisions of quality control
    Pegs the importance of position
    In self aggrandisement
    And say farewell to conscience

    Better then
    Their bellies empty
    Than ours
