Crumbling Values
Disruptions to city life
are only noticed
when they inconvenience people.
Explosions, acts of terror,
other extreme occurrences
get everyone’s attention.
A few try to help,
some sympathize,
many ignore the event
a minor distraction
as long as it doesn’t affect them
and continue normal routines
indifferent to the suffering of others.
