Who Is Listening?

Written By: Rhonda Hofer

Who Is Listening?

“Greed and competition are not the result of immutable human temperament...greed and fear of scarcity are in fact created and amplified...the direct consequences is that we have to fight with each other in order to survive”


When the bombs go off you might hear a scream through the night
A mother chooses between her and her child
Who is listening?
They line to sell their culture on the streets
Trading their souls so they might eat
Who is listening?
And those that buy don’t share their pain
They see what they want in selfish gain
Who is listening?

It’s not that we don’t care perhaps forgotten why we’re here?
Our hearts our souls no world apart
Bound in love like sounds of Mozart
We are the enemy or the friend
The change, the hope, the start, the end

Even though I steal a little here and there
Just a few small lies to get my share
Who is listening?
Perhaps someone’s child makes no difference to me
I throw ‘em my change for a glimpse of peace
Who is listening?
It’s all fine my conscience asleep tonight
Fuck with their needs even if they die
Who is listening?

Weren’t we chanting “yes we can, yes we can?”
What did we see that we all could change?
But who is listening?
