Does It Matter?

I speak these words to be heard..
I don’t know if anyone listens.

Does it matter?
Drones kill kids,
the war machine glistens..

I speak these words to be heard..
I don’t know who’s listening.

Does it really matter?
dead little kids..
it’s sickening..

I speak these words to be heard..
Yet, I don’t expect you to applaud.

This is plain wrong even..
even if you don’t believe in god!

Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems of 2013?
