Which is it?

Do we see it and not believe it
Or, do we see it and we don't care
The question is very important
Because we have no excuses to say
We never knew about this
We can't believe how bad it really is
The world has had war
We've counted the losses
We've sung songs of mourning
We've honored the dead
But we still go to war
No matter how exquisite the pain is
We continue
We just get better at it
And the photos of the results don't shock us
We must not care
To continue in this spirit
