DecPoWriMo 4

Somehow when we were all looking 
We have reached the point
We knew was unthinkable
When this whole thing began

Though preventative measures
Could have been taken in earnest
Some of us did not take them seriously
Enough now there is not enough

Willpower to make even the slightest
Difference in the outcome of suffering
Going against every instinct
That created us as a distinct species

Our survival depends upon each other
Otherwise alone we might as well not bother
