Not everyone strives to change the world
and leave it fit for children
You found this on your travels abroad
and when you looked around.
Not everyone cares enough to cry
when others squirm from hunger
You found this as you walked the streets
with ice-cream in your hand.
Not everyone cares we lost the dodo
and barbary lions are gone
You found this as you missed the cod
and oysters in the wild
Not everyone cares the sun will shrink
and Earth will die from heat
You found this as you picked plastic
and chucked it in the bin.
Not everyone fails to give a damn
and walks the other way
You met him on the television
thank goodness for that man.
