An Inconvenient Passage Ahead – Unhinged Poem 2020TOO

we shield the eyes of children,

from the dire deeds of today,

whimsical protests,

horror filled tales of dread and despair,

flaunting our words with colours so dark,

fulfilling our dreams through fake tales we tell,

segregating ourselves from each other,

beneath masks we’ve always worn,

a crescendo of capitalism,

partners words lost without care,

open the door,

see the stares of democracy at work,

allow the truth to set you free,

then return to the well and continue on,

for there is no other,

there is no beyond…
