Everybody is at war with words
over whom to blame for this genocide,
while a thousand bodies,
crushed beneath the dead weight of fallen roofs,
putrefied the air.
Then yet another thousand more at least
men, women and children are waiting too
beneath the mound of death,
while the time and air both are running out,
in futile hope.
Now where are the brands like
Primark, Levis, Wall Mart, Nike or The Children’s Place,
that have gained profits, large
from cheap labor sold in these factories!
You bet they are not even worried though, they don’t mind,
for in a overcrowded land of two hundred million
they can kill a few thousand poor souls, anytime
and get away with it.
