Never there

Your country is going down the hole
You post pictures of cute dogs
We are all inside a time machine
Going back to the Dark ages
You're sharing videos of fluffy cats 

The poor are losing the little chance they had
Women are disappearing from spaces they'd finally started to share
Students are being beaten 
Struggling for the bit that should be naturally theirs

And you? 
You are there 
With your pictures by the pool 
Your forced fake whitened smile 
Your Instagram full of pictures of your drinks
You don't give a damn if the ship sinks

They are telling us not to think
They are telling us not to care
They are telling us all
And some of us are fighting back
But you don't count 
You never counted
You were never there
