Have never really changed,
Though rhetoric's said we've grown more humane,
The news remains the same.
The Snowden leaks reveal the NSA,
Has hacked the U.N.'s mail,
The biggest intel org in the U.S.,
I'm sure they just ran out of crooks to tail.
Of course the salaries and overhead,
For the team that did it,
Could likely have fed a small city or,
Pulled house-poor out of debt.
And then there's war,
Happening all the time,
Ninety-five years post the one to end all,
That could have taught us how to just be kind.
