When hoax is their default setting …

What a toxic world we live in
when you take a trip online.
So many people claiming fake news
while spilling bile on their timeline.
So much hatred and denial
so much conquer and divide.
When people who appear reasonable human beings
claim lives lost to this horrid virus
are nothing more than a hoax to silence us
it makes me weep for humanity
that this much callous ignorance
could be so widely shared and believed.
Do they think of the hurt they cause?
Do they think of the poison they spread?
Do they think at all?
Or simply believe the lies they are fed?
Believing life is one big conspiracy
how do they get up in the morning?
If the world is so rotten to the core
how do they trust one another?
When believing everything to be wrong.

~The H Word~
