Music Prompt #51: “They don’t care about us” by Michael Jackson


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “After Annunciation” by Madeleine L’Engle: have, reason, filled, when, room, child, love, irrational, blooms, wild, season, bright

Lots of things happening in the world

Why can’t people be good or give it a burl?

Seasons come and go, goes bright and dark

Celebrate or just enjoy walking in the park

Flowers bloom, animals run free in the wild

Have an ice-cream that made us smiled

Children get killed just watching fireworks

Why can’t we not accept people with their quirks?

Some irrational person drove his lorry through

Life is not fair, people dying in our full view

It hurled people and left them lying on the promenade

That wasn’t right, a system so fatally flawed

Is there a reason for all this, is the world indifferent?

Are the people so selfish and have lost their fair judgment?

To our needs, sufferings, are we dissimilar from the rest?

Societies don’t care, which left a lot of people depressed

Can we not fill the world with love instead of hate?

And when we’ve achieved that, life would be great!

  1. Sigh… such a poignant and timely write. Racial prejudice or hatred towards people with different beliefs should have no place in the human mind or heart. Thank you so much for participating at MLMM 🙂

    Lots of love,
