Ever wondered at the prosperity of evil?
Not the politics and intrigue,
but the surrender of the will of people.
So much reported fear and loathing.
No contagion can compare to a poor bloodied person,
With nothing to say but with desperation for company.
Endless “Likes” for messages of hate and anger,
Willing the hurt and even death of people never met.
So many willing to kill without trial or hearing.
If challenged people feign guilt or ignorance,
But in the company of wolves content to snarl.
Company of the mob dulls everyone’s reason.
2016 and people raise salutes for Adolf Hitler.
The ovens at Bergen-Belsen still warm to touch.
I do not question terror any more.
