Stuck in waking nightmare, an apathetic generation
watches in silent opinion, as banks fail, jobs move to third worlds,
over-financed homes are handed back with ease.
Forty years before their parents protested in the streets,
for a better world, Malcolm X had a dream,
grandmother’s demanded the right for a vote.
Change the television channel, that tsunami never happened,
Yahoo bought Tumbler – children in the Philippines are displaced,
Iran keeps the right to enrich uranium – to keep the peace,
nuclear attack discussions incomplete, the G8 needed a break
to support small business day and the Millennium babies?
They remain bewildered by diversions in place to entertain
An apathetic generation.
