There is Something Wrong

Full Text

1 There is something wrong if we cheer along
When the people called ""bad"" are slain
On a cinema screen or a real-life scene
As if we were in some kind of game
A game where their death is a plus
And another point for us
But if we are to be humane
We must get ourselves out of this game.
