Embalming the Conscience
Embalming the conscience,
of a world catatonic with apathy.
Apathy worn on sleeves,
with shimmering cuff-links of brazen indifference.
Shopping, mall-hopping, acquiring.
Squinting at designer tags.
Ah! But the party never ends,
as we giggle and flirt and drink and screw.
While corpses burn,
nailed to the cross.
And while the others scavenge,
for scraps in the dirt.
