Bystander

Hey you bystander did you hear of the recent uproar?

You say this is nothing new

You have seen and heard this before

Hey you bystander do you have time to sign a petition?

It will only take a minute and you can help save a life

You say it’s pointless, you fear your own situation

Hey you bystander do you agree with the wrongdoing?

You seem to just sit there and watch the violence

You could lend a hand or say a word

Hey you bystander can you spare some change?

Pennies make notes which buy food and water

You refuse claiming the world will never change

And suffering and poverty is a part of the life you’ve learnt to accept

Hey you bystander do you care?

Because one day it may be you who suffers

While the rest of us stand and stare
