Love has worn Thin

Love has worn thin
Emaciated between the lids of our eyes
Dust

Society is in a habit of
Combust
not Able to conceal
Emotions

Incessant lies
Useless 
Excuses 
of deceit

Dripping, dripping
Down the drain
Mazes through the sewers
To the taps of our water
To wash our faces with
We thrive on deception
Start the day with misconception
Plan B pills in our pants
Babies in the trash
Gang wars streaming out the window into the seas
America
Bacteria on Petri dishes
Squirming under the hot lights

Poke us
Dissect our hearts
And you will see
Nothing but viral cells multiplying and dividing
Transmitting and killing 
Mercilessly
