Glass empty

Come with me to the abyssal plain of humanity

where nothing is real, not even  sanity

where there no such thing as love and trust

just contempt, want and lust

where cynical minds play at your fears

where the only laughter is sneers and jeers

a very cold and distant place

where the kindest of you have spat in my face

compassion and love I heard them say

but I've watched everyone of them turn away

where The churches are filled with sacrilegious people

with their mahogany benches and golden steeples

Where they call themselves the consumer culture

Where the green eyed monsters fight like vultures

Where I look out my door and all I see

is the land of the me, from sea to polluted sea.
