Candy Floss Concerns

We make political statements with cupcakes 
While half the world burns
They can’t rebuild their broken lives
With our candy floss concerns

They can’t survive on marshmallow dreams
Or our pastel-painted apathy
Grasping profits on the back of their pain
With yet another slogan T-

These causes that go viral
When suffering is trending
We daren’t lift an actual finger
Hashtag World Is Ending
Here today and gone tomorrow
Some celeb’s marriage is rending
They’re just as soon forgotten
For what the algorithm’s sending

Our sugar-coated platitudes
Won’t stop the wars from killing
Just stop
Why won’t it stop?
The outlook’s downright chilling.

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
