The Sin of Underprivilege

And another one dies Of AIDS, of TB, of cancer What does it matter? We don’t care Why should we? It doesn’t affect us Secure in our towers of privilege Looking down on those below. How easily we condemn their poverty From our exalted positions Do we really need them? We ask themselves They are just an eyesore On our cultured landscape They don’t contribute anything Useful To our lives We are better off without them! And outside Another one dies. 16/07/1990
