What’s Wrong With Us?

NO LONGER DO THEY CRY  
THEY BARELY EMPATHIZE
NO TEARS FROM THEIR EYES
THEY RARELY SYMPATHIZE
WHAT ARE THE REASONS
THE QUESTION IS WHY?
HAS SOCIETY BECOME DESENSITIZED?
HAS THE POPULACE BECOME UNCIVILIZED?
THERE ARE TOO MANY RAPES AND TOO MANY VILE
PREVALENCE OF MURDERS AND OTHER CRIMES
PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER SHOCKED
NO LONGER HORRIFIED
WHENEVER THERE ARE VEHICULAR ACCIDENTS 
OR SOMEONE IS INJURED AND ON THE ROAD LEFT TO DIE
THEY WILL FAIL TO GIVE ASSISTANCE 
AND NO COMPASSION THEY  WILL APPLY
INSTEAD, THEIR CAMERAS ARE AIMED  
 AT THOSE WHO ARE COMPROMISED 
THEN THE GORY PHOTOS ARE PUBLISHED 
ON SOCIAL MEDIA, ONLINE

YES, EVERYTHING HAS TO BE SENSATIONALIZED
THEN THEY COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER
TO SEE WHO GET THE MOST LIKES
CHILDREN ARE UNLOVED 
THEY ARE SEVERELY CHASTISED
THERE IS A LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE ELDERLY 
AND THE MARGINALIZED
IMPORTANT THINGS ARE REGULARLY TRIVIALIZED
MATERIAL POSSESSIONS ARE OFTEN PRIORITIZED
WHILE HUMAN LIVES ARE CONSIDERED WORTHLESS
AND FREQUENTLY MINIMIZED
THERE IS TOO MUCH GREED AND TOO MUCH GLUTTONY
THEY WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED
WITH WICKEDNESS IN THEIR MIDST, EVIL THEY IDOLIZED
GODLINESS IS NEEDED IN THEIR HEARTS, MINDS, AND LIVES
