Michael this really sums up what is happening at the moment. What a dreadful consumerist world we live in. A place where too many people are so obsessed with possessions, money and power that they just don't seem to care any more about their fellow man, vulnerable children or animals.
Such atrocities I have read about recently from Doctors being arrested just because they were trying to get badly needed flu vaccinations to refugee children (apparently against the USA law) to bringing out a new law to shoot bears whilst they are hibernating. Its time that we as a race start taking responsibility and stop condoning such cruelty - give the vulnerable and weak a voice and punish those who inflict such pain and suffering on others. Glad to see it nominated its poems like this that help raise awareness. Best wishes Milly x
