Oh how I wonder

Standard

Do you ever wonder why
you have to pay for electricity
warmth and water?
Why are we paying just to exist
in a system that gives us
pain and suffering
everything but bliss

Do you ever wonder why
we have a notion of rich or poor
why in a world that belongs to all
most are born and die with nothing
yet at the same time
a small margin have everything
and want for nothing?

Do you ever wonder why
Our leaders don’t represent us
that power is in the hands of a few
and the many are made powerless
Why those we elect lie cheat and steal
yet face no criminal charges
Where we have one rule for them
and one rule for the rest of us

Do you ever wonder why
In a modern society children are starving
millions of families are on food banks
Where there is a greater obsession with
increasing gross domestic product
than there is in helping real people
Why we live in a society that
cares more about figures
than love and well being?
