Lies fall heavy against deaf ears,
while muted smiles spread false cheer.
Open, blind eyes, look past all they know,
reality is bleached, white as snow.
Morales lay as broken mirrors,
shards pierce deeply, bleeding trust, fear.
Hands extended to take, not give.
Others pay for the life they live.
Vows of loyalty once taken,
God and Country, for greed forsaken.
Festering poison, can be cured,
when next we vote, we will be heard!
