Short Changed

Bonds are breaking cold
Upon the heart is all wealth
Nothing left but self

Secure in our fear
Violence has no heart left
Progress stumbles here

None depend again
Has love depended before
I have only me

The school of want gone
What can I learn without love
But hunger again

Guns without ears laugh
Machines without heart embraced
Victims of progress
