Injustice drips unnoticed to all but victims.
Drip… drip… drip. Not for minutes, or hours or days
but years flowing into decades,
callous ignorance and carelessness
propped up by vested interests and propaganda
slowly filling to overflowing
the tolerance which keeps it all held in.
We all know the cause of this horrific scene.
To be obscene enough to demonise the innocent,
those caught up in the terror,
publish photos under phoney headlines
is more than just a foolish error.
It is a conscious effort to increase tensions
and turn the people away from truth.
But dear Daily Mail, this time you’ve failed.
This was a result of greed
in a system where those in need
are not worth the investment,
not worth the effort.
They had their pleas ignored
and the cause of death
was underscored by negligence.
Saving money, cutting corners,
ignoring warnings in reports
is like an act of war against the poor,
telling them their lives are worthless
to the landlords and the state.
In a city of such riches,
such disregard of life and rights
is nothing short of criminal.
And we’re demanding justice.
When the Prime Minister can’t lower herself
to speak to people full of grief,
such arrogance is beyond belief.
The time has come to change the game.
That silent drip drip drip
becomes the noisy tick tick tick
of a time bomb being primed.
If you think the plebs don’t matter,
it’s time to change your mind.
