A shallow world

A shallow world; full of want.
The only glee caused by revenge.
An animal instinct, sharpened by hatred,
sits in mankind’s breast.
The mind is held betwixt a hunger
and a fear, both overpowering.
The sweat beads upon our brow;
we’ve done it again.
It happens all the time.
Where is the kindness?
The so-called humanity?
Such a shallow world.
