BLAME

 

I abjure responsibility for:

Colonialism,

White Privilege,

Slavery.

  

The Crucifixion,

The Book of Joshua,

The Settlements.

  

I’m not responsible for

The social gaps,

The Syrian War,

The refugee crisis.

  

Not because of me there’s no peace,

Humanity keeps murdering.

  

I do contribute my fair share to

The World’s garbage,

Air pollution,

The water crisis,

Soil erosion,

Climate change.

  

Some people toil and sweat

To produce cheap clothes I buy.

How to tally that into my balance? 

  

Would they starve to death otherwise,

Be sold as sex slaves,

Or study engineering?

  

China used to be poor,

Now a world power.

I guess I am responsible,

Partially…
