What is it? – a poem

What is it?

 

What is it that destroys planets?

What is it that wages war?

What is it that drives the bankers and businessmen?

 

What is it that brings out the worst in politicians?

What is it that kills?

What is it that causes mass starvation?

 

What is it that ravages forests?

What is it that makes loathsome beasts of men?

What is it that is responsible for poverty, misery and inequality?

 

What is it that fuels hate, arrogance and superiority?

What is responsible for bringing out the worst in people?

What says there is never enough?

 

What screams that it is alright to do what is needed?

What states that the cost is justified?

What ignores the outcomes?

 

What doesn’t care about the injuries, the deaths or the destruction?
