Why Should They
They don’t love you and they don’t
care for your charitable outbursts.
You made a bomb and then you sold it.
And the person you sold it to dropped it
from an anonymous thirty thousand feet.
The fragments pierced the lungs and livers,
the spleens and eyes of their children,
their weddings, their funerals, and
what should have been their christenings.
Worse yet you apologise for this
collateral damage but carry on doing it.
Which really means,
you couldn’t give a toss.
They don’t love you.
Why should they?
