Why is it that compassion is so hard to find?
When the self-righteous strike out blind.
Religion condemns more than it saves,
Survival of the fittest still rules the land,
But money has taken over evolution,
Where the rich use platitudes to placate the poor,
"Let them all live," is the hypocritical compassionate claim,
We only take care of family and close friend,
Unless we can have compassion for all that are here,
It takes education and changing our minds,
For everyone left in suffering and in pain,
Parade their pet examples for all to see,
So if you are sure that your mindless cost-cutting is right,
