Blind, Deaf and Dumb

3 monkeys

If I had a hearing aid
I could turn off the dark
noise of the world.

If I were blind
I would not see
the terrible destruction
of the Earth.

If I could not speak
I would never again
say harsh words.

But I can hear,
see and speak
against the wrongs
of the world..and
I must!

Or be blind, deaf
and dumb of the soul
heart closed
doomed to a life of woe.
