I made a choice, it is my right,
But if you seek you to challenge me,
My human rights are plain to see.
For choices made for X and Y
Are all I can be accounted by
I will not consider others' fear
My responsibility ends right here.
But does it? Can it be so plain
That you can choose and choose again
Whilst blessed with this luxury of choice
You choose not to hear those with no voice.
The children whom we cannot protect
Or cannot feed, or clothe and yet...
Apparently this is all fine,
As long as it's not yours or mine.
All simple choices made by you
Will impact wider - and as they do
Those "others" whom you chose not to hear
They have rights too- just not so clear.
Vaccination, a hot potato,
Decisions made, results come later
So much written, none too clear
Unless you're reading without fear.
Thus selfish, pseudo-educated views
Become much more when out on view
Social Media is much to blame it's true
Endorsing "Me" and Forgetting YOU.
The smokers stating "It's my Life"
The drunks on Friday "I have that Right"
They're taking Liberty just too far, forgetting there is another "R"
Rights they have but something else, they leave RESPONSIBILITY on the shelf.
