What is the use of the so-called "big brains" in the modern day world if they have selfish thoughts? Please do give serious criticism so that I can imporve my writing skills, thanks everyone!

Do you think they care?

Do you think they care,
When they lift the sword,
To assasinate their sisters?
They lock them up in little cages,
Trying to "save them" from the harsh world,

Do you think they care,
When they plant the bombs,
To eradicate innocent people?
They want their own problems solved,
But don't have the right brains to solve them,

Do you think they care,
When they plot conspiracies,
To throw an honest man off of his seat?
Instead of bringing a change to the country,
They sweep the land off the farmer's feet,

Do you think they care,
When they use all the nation's money,
For their delicacies?
When the poor man is starving,
They travel in air-conditioned jets,
And talk about cost-cutting,
In their so-called revolutionary speeches,

Do you think they care,
When the flesh trade of innocence goes on?
They question their purity,
But do not realise what went wrong,

Do they really care?
Do they have a heart which can feel?
Are they human?
I think not....

This is presented beautifully. It clearly lays out a problem that is all too real in today"s world in many places around the globe. It challenges the reader to think.
