What is The West
the global North
The lattitude
that poured forth
the bounty? Is nature
or god or man responsible
for this attitude?

Who are these people –
oh, they are not all pale-faced
to be sure – but all their hearts
are hardened.

Were they born that way?
Does great wealth
impact the vegus nerve
like a weight
until it no longer sends
a message to the brain?

Are they all insane?

Or were they in some way
along the way blinded?
Are they unable to see
the hideous irony
of their weeping for the children
whose deaths are their doing?
