bigoted bias is blatant
when law enforcers kill at will
Humanity is Forsaken

when rapists and murders go free
on legalities, justice vanishes and
Humanity is Forsaken

when men earn far more
and monopolise the senior positions
Humanity is Forsaken

when psychopaths and dictators rule
massive protests go unheard
Humanity is Forsaken

when those with excessive wealth
vote based on who will fill their pockets
Humanity is Forsaken

when refugees have to risk their lives
escaping wars poverty and oppression
Humanity is Forsaken

when all the isms are ignored
we weep for humanity for
Humanity is surely Forsaken
