Do you remember our anger
the day they pulled the bodies
Limp and dirty, coated in grime
and how care-less they seemed and we
We would change things, punish them for
what they did, it would never happen again
we raged, raGeD RAGed
In tweets, blog posts, opinion columns
in newspapers, it was what people talked
about on talk shows and news
But today, as the numbers click, click, click
fast for three maybe four dollars a gallon,
our minds rest only on the destination, or
anywhere but the bodies they pulled out
That day that we raged.
Looking at the picture, my first thoughts was the man was overboard but color being what it is my thoughts went to the oil spill that happened in the Gulf about 20 months ago. At the time there was outrage at BP and then we found something else to rage about. Right now we Occupy, but will it really matter a year from now or will we be once more resigned to our position.
