Death and Distaster

Death and Disaster, are they all that matter to the public now?
Respect, honor and glory are no longer relevant; antinquity has claimed even the bow,
Secularism, and materialistic views, what does our society value any more?
Empty gestures and expressions they want to hear, like saving the economy and ending the war,
But when the supposedly beloved Haiti goes down under, we all are up in arms,
Then if we care so much, why hadn't we aided in evacuating the Haitians and all of their charms,
But now that a mere week has passed, and the damage is still done, the press no longer seems to care,
Shifting their emphasis to newer and "better" topics in order to with all the world share,
Short-attention spans? Who knows.
