Doesn't Make Sense to Me

Location

I watch the news, people are dying

look around the halls, girls are crying

not about the hyrricane, or the war in Iraq-

about the boys they admire

the popularity they lack. 

 

With all this going on, why do we still watch TV?

read cosmo, go shopping, talk about Rhianna and Jay-Z?

It doesn't make sense, doesn't make sense to me. 

 

Even though I only wrote this a year ago,

no one ever thinks about Haiti anymore.

A new disaster- different broadcaster

forgotten once the room fills with laughter.

 

It's so weird it happens so suddenly.We care, we don't- yes I'm saying WE.It doesn't make sense, doesn't make sense to me.
