The aftermath…

After the rain, the sun never shone
It was just as if a bright light had gone
Then slowly at night activity all ceased
Violent crime unremittingly increased.

The bombs had destroyed all the power plants
Government response to the poor’s non-compliance
Till slowly street life just ground to a halt
People lay dying became the default.

No clean water caused the spread of disease
Soon there was cholera and children had fleas
It needn’t have happened, but governments don’t heed
The basic essentials of poor peoples’ need.

Eventually people will rise to a cause
Vile as it may be they don’t think to pause
And consider what may be the dark end result
Where everyone suffers and it’s everyone’s fault.
