Title: Silence is Golden

A cruel and often brutal place
Filled with mutes called the human race
With sneers and a veneer of disgust on their face
In a downward spiral freefall from grace
This world is harsh, fertilized with tears
The streets lined with pain and the air thick with fear
The weak are dominated by the strong
They speak for right whilst committing their wrongs
Silence is golden
Ignorance is bliss
Can we just stand by while they take the piss?
Don’t listen to their lies
See through the façade
Millions have died in our own back yard
They weren’t so different from you or me
Your son or your daughter, your bride to be
They did nothing wrong, they asked for no strife
They were deemed insignificant
And it cost them their life
While humans stood by, passive and mute
Didn’t deride and didn’t dispute
A cruel and often brutal place
Can only be changed by the human race.
