deception…

deception

a sliding scale
from
poisonous politeness
to
grand larceny
nations
unwilling
to
look
into
their own mirror
for fear
the reflection
will
show
their true self
the deep
festering scars
of
injustice
the blood shot eyes
of
drunken power politics
and
the cancerous
rotting
flesh
of
freedom
so
it’s been
decided
to
replace
all
the mirrors
with
hand painted
mythical
portraits
of
nonexistent
nations
found only
in
panglossian pages
of
history
