Man's Lack of Compassion

Who gives a damn about the crying man? What about human beings they’re treated so mean Some are more concerned about animals and beast While they treat their own kind the (human race) the least What about fair housing What about unpaid student loans Some politicians say “Squash that, our hearts are made of stone” What about well paying jobs for all, that’s the greatest call What about the environment, how much more abuse can it stand? It’s not about cigarette smoke that’s destroying the ozone It is man-made chemicals, halogens, chlorine and bromine that’s Destroying the land When it’s too late the crying man will dissipate And those who turned their heads will meet their fate
