Thinking on hypocrisy; looking to another day

Political bureaucracy; Judy’s killer gets away

Gus the cat watching in bewilderment

As the lines on my face grow more intense

With good reason, from concern and rage

Deep contempt the world is a stage


I wonder which fulfillment to fulfill

Exploring a high without a pill

Sunshine through a severed blind

Burning into my open mind

Are the anxieties of all my wants

A society without the stress it flaunts


Live in the present all your days

To hell with the past, you'll be amazed

Turn and walk away from the downers of everyday

Walk straight and strong and proud and pray

You may inspire love into someone’s hate
