In fragile times of great unrest
When crimes profuse in moral protest
And hostility ensues, while civility arrest
I emplore compassion with fervent behest.
We point away to shift the blame
Our echoed retort of disjointed shame
Ah, yet apathy doth fuel the flame
Yes, we alone perpetuate This. Sad. Game.
“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
~ His Holiness Dalai Lama
