Perhaps Guilty!!

Perhaps Guilty!

Refugees, displaced persons,
ethnic cleansed, homeless,
Those,    who in this world
experience death before dying,
to stir our apathetic hearts
you invade the comfort of our homes
through hi-tec images, internet-info. 
Like satellite pictures
beamed from another galaxy
we gaze in disbelief.
Perhaps guilt makes us feel relieved
when the picture changes
to the latest soap
or some healthy life-style show.
How can we comprehend such pain,
such raw anguish
from the comfort of an armchair?
