Zero Point One Eight Billion

An awkward silence engulfs the conscience
of the world. Fourteen years into
the twenty first century, the world is no more
concerned about the fate of zero point
one eight billion self-indulgent,
blind souls, there are larger markets to worry for,
instead and why the world should even care
when the souls themselves do not;
what profit might worries grant the world, in return!
So, in that awkward silence, let us rot
for as long as our souls remain
indifferent to anything beyond our lives,
like animals, to breed, sire and to die at last!
So long let these words be hidden beneath the dust!
