Consumer Ignorance

She sighs at all the bloody past –
then sips coffee, eats choc-o-late –
relieved she never played a part.

She sighs at all the bloody past,
when slaves sailed under English masts,
torn from family far a part.

She sighs at all the bloody past –
then sips coffee, eats choc-o-late.
