Apathy is nothing new
The sins of man are hardly few

The local crowds gather about
To see some ‘justice’ carried out

The stockade, lash, or hangman’s noose
Make spectacle of law’s abuse

Young men’s lives are thrown away
So governments can get their pay

Yet silently the masses stare
Apparently without a care

No pity shows upon their faces
Content that they had not switched places

No crying out against the act
As if all empathy they lacked

No, apathy is nothing new
But I suppose you knew that too
