smoke pours from burning buildings
no reason to care

It's so sad, but true, how indifferent people actually are to the pain of others. Wonderful poem!!!

Ouch.

When you read the middle line as a metaphor, it can refer to so many things. The economy, Iraq, global warming, poverty, Darfur...

Nicely done.

This is such a sad reflection on just how advanced is our civilisation. We care so much about self, there is no room for anyone else!
