A Bad Person?

Stuck in traffic the other day
Waited for half an hour
Everything finally started moving
But moving slowly
A Traffic accident
Somebody was badly injured
As the paramedics loaded them up
Everybody drove by slowly
Staring out the windows
Hoping to catch a glimpse
Of the horror
I wondered
Why is that
Why is it that every time thereís an accident
Traffic stops
The gawkers
Hoping to catch an eyeful of the Gore
You might Say thatís horrible
But if you were there
Youíd Probably look
They look like normal people
Why is it that normal people
Probably afraid of death
But when itís right in front of them
Canít look away
I mean if I was in the car with you
And I said that guy just got hit
His brains are hanging out of the side of his head
Would you slow down and look
Probably
Most would
Why is that
Is it the darkness inside of every human being
Even if your normal looking
You probably have it
Some have it more than others
But keep it concealed
It doesnít make you a bad person
Or does it
I just said youíre afraid death
But like to watch others die
Sounds rough doesnít it
When someone puts it into words
Twisted
Yet so many are guilty of it
And nothings said
Is it one of those things that are better left unsaid
That you love to watch people in pain
If someone gets shot people have to see
If thereís s fight a crowd gathers
Most of the time no one helps the situation
They just watch
Is it some kind of primitive instinct
That makes us want to watch the misery of others?
Whoís to say
But it doesnít make you a bad person
Or does it?
