Mediterranean migrants: 700 dead! After 900 set sail. The little Titanic.

"Of the 900 or so passengers who were capsized on Saturday, only 28 have been recovered alive. A conservative death toll of 700 would make this the most statistically shocking disaster yet," -quoted from @independent website


Death is death, we die everyday, but
700 in one swoop... And all because
A man is trying to live - trying an illegal
End to finding happiness and a
Reason to go on living, that's the irony
Of it all; we have heard of many
A tale as this one; migrants not reaching
Their promised lands; migrants dying
In inhumane ways just to survive; life
Must never be this hard, humans must
Never be this detached to hearing such
Stories and brush them away; find a
Way to help; find a way to aid; not
Their illegal ways, but legal routes
To happiness and life.

Keep your babies safe.

What would they have turned out
To be if they had not died by
Your pets hand...? We might write and
Say the next female or male president
But we really don't know; your babies
Chance in life depends entirely on
You; keep your babies safe; no child
Deserves to die without growing and
Fulfilling their dreams.

Black men against Black men... How the white people love this xenophobic collision.

Culling animals becomes a normal
Routing in abattoirs; but watching
Animals kill each other is sport and
Recreation; South Africa a powerful
Democratic land, home to history
And struggle - sees blacks harm
One another unfortunately fuelled
By illiterate and thought literate
Minds; peace reigns in homes and
Suburbs, peace reigns in office
Buildings and the stock exchange;
Money knows one enemy, and that's
A person trying to take it away from
You; though in a home which has no
Income, little income, or a big family
Uneducated on family planning, poverty
Drives men who think themselves wise
Not knowing that harming a fellow
African will not give them jobs for
Jobs still go to better minds and

'Stop xenophobia, end hate'.

The $15 minimum wage: Madness.

What amount will make you happy
To earn? How much will satisfy your
Health; the world needs to earn
Money; the world cares less unless
You are able to render to Caesar
What belongs to Caesar; will $15
Make you happy...? Will inflation
Upon receiving your $15 dollars
Keep everything else the same;
For they won't give you this without
Taking a lot more from you.

Lance Armstrong: why didn't we just look away?

Are legends meant to be shattered;
Father Christmas - by ten years of
Age you know the truth; tooth fairy,
Once you understand the value of
Money the fairy disappears; and now
Lance Armstrong, gone is the greatest
Cycling legend of all time, gone is
Motivation, the tours he conquered,
The lives he touched; would it have
Been proper to just turn and look
The other way... I held his book the
Other day, and thought to myself,
Sometimes a man does bad things
For the good of remaining the
Peoples loved one; For that pinnacle
Is his burden to always be the
Greatest and to always conquer for
Our joy, and lustful expectations.

'Free-range' parenting: mocking the rules of nurturing.

To what extent does a child have
Free reign; to what extent do you
Feel allowing your 10 and 6 year
Old child roam and wander the
Streets alone for hours with no
Worry if they are safe or well;
No baby must be left alone... I
See this daily, Africa in some cities
Parents have no choice but to work
And hope for the best that once they
Reunite with their babies they are
Still safe; this is not an excuse,
But if you are capable and able to live
A normal life, then normal parenting
Must reign; not to abandon your
Children treating them as adults in
This sexual predator world.

Sex offender new playground: social media sites best for grooming children.

If one man can successfully target
28 children; amass that number to 20 sex
Offenders, 90 sex offenders, 200 sex
Offenders; a scary outcome for our innocent
Children who as children seek to
Learn more, dream of more, and
Experiment with a lot more technological
Innovations which we didn't have growing
Up; why do men do these things...?
A life of a child is precious, and it pains
Me to hear that dirty men have no
Shame to groom babies for despicable
Acts. You will be found out.
