The kids who died

the conspiracy of silence
are we part of the solution
are we part of the problem
are we part of the silent indifferent majority

neither condemning and neither condoning
evil and foul clouding the air
rushing to our homes
switching on our tele

waiting for the kick
of the legally sanctioned opium
to enter our brain cells
and somedays

when it is really quiet
a cold shudder passes through your shoulder
we could have been wolves
but we chose to be candy sucking sheep

so we could enjoy the playground
and swings with our children
not knowing how many children
died waiting for you to make the call
