The cradle cap of neglect
seethes into a foam

like the virus
like the cold
it feeds and grows
it consumes, then devours
every last flowers
it smothers the air
the rancid odour

the cradle cap of neglect
the curse of the ages
the fault of the many

ignorance no excuse
information abound
we let it happen
we will suffer the consequences
we knew better
we neglected to act

we were warned
we failed to act
the cradle cap of neglect
beware the child of want
charles dickens did say
and also
beware the child of ignorance
we were warned
