Through our radio stations

Through our radio stations

Through our radio stations and on our televisions and online,
we are pulled in to walk through the war zones with our eyes,
through our radio stations,
and on our televisions and online,
we are pulled in to see the suffering,
and the countless deaths time and time again.
Through our radio stations,
and on our televisions and online,
we see the bombs explode and hear the bullets whizz past on their fatal missions,
we see the explosions and the bodies blown to bits,
we see the crying and the distraught relatives,
the shell-shocked children,
and the women and the men who are covered in dust and rubble and who are in little bits,
but the doctors do their best,
but not everyone can be fixed.
and through our radio stations and on our televisions and online we see the destruction,
we see the torture,
we see the death,
we see the brutality,
we see the damage to humanity from the eternal war through which we live,
and which we hear about on our radio stations and see on our televisions,
and online and in newspapers,
and in magazines and we are desensitised for it is such a regular thing the malady of war,
the malady of war,
and the sickness in the human condition,
but our leaders do not listen enough,
despite our countless protests,
and the countless tears that have fallen from humanities eyes.
