How Can We - Poem by Jessica Banta

How can we disregard
The broken heart
How can we turn aside
Those weary eyes
And give a look of disdain
Call them hopeless and mundane
Say that they’re insane
How can we
Live the life we live
In a world so cold
A crumb of bread
To no one give
And turn our backs
On babies being sold
How can we turn away
The beggars on the street
Look at them and complain
That they’re all dead beats
