Too Busy
Regina Puckett

The sky was filled with clear and ominous signs
But we were too busy with our trifling shrines
We missed the sirens and warning flashing lights
We missed the cautionary shouts and bloody fights
We missed the pandemonium and chaos in the streets
Until the news aired the bodies under blood-soaked sheets
Only then did we watch with our popcorn and snacks nearby
Too busy texting, googling and tweeting to mourn and cry
