Do you care that the world is in total chaos?
No! I am most worried about Miley Cyrus.
Isn’t global poverty such a shame?
So what? I’m watching the ‘Price Is Right’ game.
Your government is spying on you.
‘Survivor’s’ on and that’s not true.
There’s been a drone strike in Pakistan.
Oh, good! I still love Pokémon.
I cannot vote; I’ve no I.D.!
How do you like my new TV?
People are dying for lack of insurance.
Botox will work; I’ve my doctor’s assurance.
Whistleblowers are thrown in the brig.
Does this make my butt look big?
The homeless have no place to stay.
Who will the ‘Bachelor’ pick today?
My house is in foreclosure, what should I do?
I think my SUV is the perfect color blue.
Wake up! Wake up before it’s too late!
How you do carry on! But I have a date.

There are so many people who choose to remain ignorant of what is going on. They would rather tune in to the latest scandal on some reality TV show then educate themselves on what really matters. Though some of us try, we cannot get through because as I’ve stated, they have ‘eyes that will not see and ears that will not hear’. Will they wake up? I sincerely doubt it.
