For the visually challenged reader, the image shows three men, one covering his eyes, the other covering his ears and the last one covering his mouth with their hands.
They close their eyes so as not to see
Life in true reality,
What it means for those with nought,
When in times of conflict caught.
They close their ears so as not to hear
The screams of terror crystal clear,
Young and old as they try to flee
A life of true reality.
They close their mouths so as not to say
Or admit it won’t go away,
Bury their heads in a beach of sand,
It’s their fault things got out of hand.
Who is to blame for this mess we call Earth,
Those who have bled it for all it was worth,
They won’t see, or speak, or hear
Until it’s too late and we live in fear.
