Pleas from Aleppo

An elitism set awhirl like a spinning top 
Buoyed in hypocritical double standards and flimsy hoax
A nuisance that seems to never stop 
And the world Is stage staggering in its hazards and coax 
In constrained selective sympathy and nuance 
As the pressed lurk in their solemn withering plight 
And the hashtags and social media rage made no functional relevance 
Whiles sentiments and selective sympathies fade overnight 
Accompanied by lukewarm solidarity as it always been 
Yet blood thirsty fanatics hide behind elitism to perpetrate unbelievable crimes 
Fuelled by greed and damned ideologies obscene 
And the aftermath,A cacophony of unheard bestrewn voices too sublime for a shift in paradigm  
And they cry in the dirt and dust yet we care less 
So they live to die another day in their darkness and hopeless distress

Thanks Mate. Its such a shame most people don't care about what is going on there, but in the end we are all humans and this rests on us to help bring this madness to an end.

Too bad it's become political chess for world leaders who don't really care about the humans suffering from their game.

It really is a shame what is happening in Syria. Very good write. Depressing, but well expressed.
