When the bell tolls, are we
as touched as we should be?
If the human race is a family
that makes related you and me.
If I am crying at your wake,
are you crying at mine if it comes first?
If present you could not be,
would you be touched at the loss of me?
I know I would at the loss of you.
I would cry my eyes out and not be through.
We should feel a bond between all mankind,
but instead, we kill, maim, and blind.
Are you ever touched by the death of a stranger?
If it is not a relative, do you shed a tear?
