when did i become radicalized?

the more proper question is:
when did you become
desensitized
to the needs of your fellow humans?

when did you decide that
callous greed was better than
empathy?

it’s you that decided
equality and justice
don’t matter
it’s you who says
children can starve
be bombed and shot
that profits are
more important
than people

everyone deserves
to eat
have a home
live a life free of fear and disease
