How can we say that silence is golden,
When abused,tormented,silenced children
Are begging for cruel men to let them go

How can we say that a forceful police force is needed,
When thousands of innocents are harmed by them
All of whose voices won’t be heard

How can we say that less gun control is needed,
When millions are slaughtered by a single trigger
Most of them not living to see their 21st birthday

How can we say that the environment is fine as it is
When in China, Japan, India we have to wear masks
Just to go to school, to work, to anywhere

How can we say that our health is fine
When millions don’t have healthcare, homes, and food
All of whom will meet an early death

We state that these things are fine, and necessary,
But as we do so, we cover up the wounds that
Kill, abuse, silence others
