So who will speak on behalf of the dead?
Will they ever lie as forgotten sacrifices in the putrid side gutters of the golden path to profit and mindless economic growth?
Who decided to let a sickness reign unfettered across our land? Was it a collective decision? Did the People agree? Or did one person grab the power and decide to unleash the tide?
Who decided that profit is more precious than life?
Death by accident is accidental death not planned. Death by murder is a crime. But death by Government Policy?
Political fingers at a deniable remove. It wasn’t us. No overt signs of blood on their grabbing strangling hands.
It wasn’t Corporate us. Without growing profit, nothing will trickle down to where nothing ever has or will. We deserve our rewards.
It wasn’t little old Investor us. Who cares if that’s another grandmother, or grandfather, or mother, or father, or child, or stranger, gone. We’ve six houses and we want more. Open things up. Give us our freedoms.
We voted for them. But it wasn’t us. They cater to us because we vote for them. Give us money, more tax breaks, feed our avaricious aspirations. But it wasn’t us, we are just voters. Not killers at all.
Culpability. Hard to define. Hard to pin in place.
The Old and Sick are quietly expendable. More deaths today. More tomorrow.
Government Policy. Who decides it? Who supports it? Who profits by it? Who are these proxies?
Because murder by proxy is still murder indeed.
