The heart of darkness

Indifference tolls the knell of humankind
So easy just to turn our eyes away
We often self deceive or mimic blind;
So Hitler goosestepped; foolish Pope but prayed

How bright the candlelight on Christmas trees
And tender children widen joyous eyes
Yet for the other,we will hear no pleas.
At every heartbeat “foreign” babies die..

Can we love any but those who share our genes,
What sense the tale of Arab aiding Jew?
Is the underlying truth not seen?
As Jesus said the chosen are but few

We split the world into a double view;
The good, the bad,the heart of darkness slew
