New World Thought Disorder

The famine enforcing capitalism,
Our enslavement to exploitative greed,
We sow the seeds of our destruction,
As millions starve and choke and bleed.

A selfish decadence blots our vision,
Children crying at night alone,
Global dominance the Western mission,
War-torn families forced from homes.

What of love and hope and beauty?
The ideals and values close to our hearts,
What are we creating for our future?
Burning all bridges here at the start.

Down with a system of decaying virtue,
Dead refugees by the thousands fleeing war,
Just images in the media that cannot hurt you,
When you glorify the rich you villainise the poor.
