Vapid celebrities


Filling the news



Bouncy outlandish personalities



Living life not really seeing



The world but only the trappings



Of the rich and famous



Not the adjoining 



Neighbourhoods that are poor 



Now facing reality 



When they are targeted



By those who are bad



Poor or indifferent



Wake-up calls can be 



Good 



But what a terrible price



Leftover PTSD occurs

  4. So true. It's interesting - when I saw the words to use this week I thought 'Mmm tricky' yet in the end a lot of us have followed similar themes.

  5. The rich are indifferent and the poor are in deprivation. Ingredients for conflicts need just some little sparks to start a conflagration!
