How Humanity Has Fallen

Inspired by the photograph 'The Vulture and The Little Girl', taken by Kevin Carter.

How humanity has fallen

Stick-like limbs and belly swollen

Man does nothing to ends its strife

Starvation claims another life


Photographer knows right from wrong

But he just turns and carries on

Back at home, we cry ‘How could you?’

But it’s what any of us would do


Man does nothing, and walks away

Child won’t last another day

The bird’s the one that will get fed

But God’s own gift is left for dead

The End
