I don't know if it's just getting older
or the state of the world right now,
but it seems to me evil doesn't have to be
as blatant as it once was.

I realised quite a while ago
that the man who make millions
from sweatshop labor
goes home at night, to his wife and kids
whom he loves.

And have we become so detatched
that we're willing to overlook
incredible injustices
just because we know that the villain is
as human as the rest of us

And though it may seem shocking to hear
that the most vile of men also fear
or are capable of shedding a tear
in order to keep one's conscience clear:
it seems the best option
is to judge people on their actions
because they face the same choices
as you or I

And if they're able to maintain their souls,
what good is it to say that I have a soul as well?
And if these are the people who will make it to Heaven,
I'm not certain I wouldn't be happier in Hell.

Example:
"I read you are a vegetarian and are
seriously concerned with the way animals are killed"
"Yeah?"
"Doesn't that concern extend to humans?"
"Curiously not"
