Seven billion strong

humanity ignorant but vain,
seven billion strong,
and growing, everyday,
climate change,
health care,
a fair wage,
how are we to cope?
is there no kindness?
is there no hope?
seven billion strong,
too scared to face the truth,
we are born to die,
few, truly missed when they are gone,
replaced immediately from the seven billion strong,
sunshine or snow,
and pay,
temporary problems,
they will go away,
along with the rest of us,
Seven billion strong.
