STATE OF PLAY

Written by: Brian Strand

The unfairness
                     of life
stares
us
              in the face
Each
day
every day
                day after
                                day
the
innocent
                       die
                            young
legislators
deceive
              monied men
                       into greed
makes us
bleed
              our protectors
              dissemble
the media
a rabble
                   resemble
in none
do we trust
                  where lies
abound
buried in deceit
                   all around
                    injustice
the cry
does
        no one 
                   sigh
at lie
after
lie
            does anyone
care
              revenge
              cannot
be
for                 me
               or for 
thee 
               Truth
will still be
for
He
              did
              atone
He will
make
good
             our
                cries
and
each 
              groan
