Wilfull Neglect – A Poem of Oblivious Joy.

I am in my bubble

and all is right with the world

I don’t see that woman

begging with her hands out-held

 

I don’t see the children

running barefoot through the mud

or the beaten donkeys

coloured red with their own blood

 

I don’t watch the adverts

on the television screen

So I don’t see the sufferingย 

thousands in our world so green.

 

I refuse to watch the news

Its grim and dark despairing

I haven’t seen world leaders

with their faces so uncaring.

 

I don’t answer the door

when charities come knocking

So I am not aware of

the plight that’s oh so Shocking

of the leopards, lions,

tigers, bears and the need for water

the starving, dying millions,

someones beloved son or daughter.

 

I am happy dreaming here

All content and full of mirth

I am in my bubble

I see no problems on this Earth.ย

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
