Where is Humanity?

A teenage girl was killed by her family, because she fell in love.
They called it killing for honour; they said she shamed the family.
But that’s okay, because no iPhone has been lost!

A man of twenty-six was murdered, because his lover was a man.
They called him unnatural, they said he deserved it.
But that’s okay, because no one missed a train!

A woman was gang raped and left to die.
They blamed her outfit, they she was intoxicated.
But that’s okay, because, “oh, that dress fits!”

A country has been bombed, hundreds have lost their lives.
But that’s okay, because, “dudeeee that mix sounds sick!”

Another day passes, another month dawns, another year approaches,
Materialism replaces humanity, materialism replaces humanity.
