What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

One Simple Question.

Where are your indignant and outraged words,
That condem chemtrailed skies and toxic seeds,

That point out the decline in wild songbirds,
Is linked to the way you round up your weeds,

How corporate wheels leak their oily mess,
Then pollute the seas with corexit foam.

Why you are happy having less and less,
While your world is stripped right down to it's bone.

That Japan has been left to radiate,
Pumping cancer into the swelling surf,

How you would much rather procrastinate,
Than shout out the truth for all it is worth,

And so as you watch your world slowly die,
One simple question, Why do you comply?

    It's good to be reminded of the things we become complacent about and since we live in democracies, we're all responsible - we can't pretend it's someone else's fault. Good poem.

  • Dave Walker (8/18/2013 10:21:00 AM)

    A really great poem, the greed of the world is getting worse and worse.
    And people are following like lambs to the slaughter. A fantastic write.

  • Dinesh Nair (8/18/2013 8:57:00 AM)

    The elusive answers emphasise the power of your questions and the phases of human life ahead may find out the panacea let us hope Anthony sir...

    Those of us awake, not of the nodding crowd, see the nightmare and try even if its a voice in the wilderness. Sometimes people think to much of their wants rather than their needs. Great poem 10 /10 BB: O)
