What is it worth?
“A financial gain, especially the difference between the amount earned and the amount spent

A torrential rain of websites laundering clicks from gubernatorial wanton
Tick tock the clock goes as their time runs thing
Lacking oxygen, rations, and passion for they are commoditized “Over half a million refugees pour into Bangladesh”
Over half the price slashed on these vegan juicers
These futures stifled in search of capital

Radical that AdSense makes sense to the corporations
Nations razed, families raped, and children’s mouths agape
“Here, let’s get this on tape”
It happens in America, Africa, Asia and more
We deplore the objectification subconsciously but share and like away consciously

As refugees venture into foray with little aid from global forces
The please go unheard and numbers go up in the third quarter
“Conflict, although morbid, makes us money.” When their noses are runny with blood instead of phlegm
Running form your country because you don’t belong

How long can we witness this in silence?
Writhing, for we wonder when our time will come

As prophet Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote while jailed in Birmingham,
“Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”
We know these problems are present yet we do nothing constructive
As we are fed sophisms from destructive politicians on a mission to cleanse what they feel is impure
Yet, the purity of the forgotten souls is what we must see
These displaced race for shelter helter-skelter with not enough help offered
Change your conscience and feel the tension boil under your skin
For what will our kin say when they realize we were the bystanders?
