Numb

April 9, 2014

A man died today!

He belonged to this world…

Well, people die all the time

It’s natural.

And it’s not like I knew him.

 

A man died today!

He was an Asian…

Well, what do you expect

It’s the third-world,

Ridden with disease and unrest

And it’s not like I knew him.

 

A man died today!

He was a Pakistani…

Well, they are fighting a “war on terror”

People die in wars

That’s just the way it works

And it’s not like I knew him.

 

A man died today!

He lived in Islamabad…

Well, its smack in the center of a war-zone!

Have you seen the amount of road-blocks there?

And it’s not like I knew him.

 

A man died today!

You knew him!

Who?

You!
