21st century hellscape

Written by: John Goodman

i hear pretty words spoken all the time

about the truth

at the same time

i hear lies

i hear deceptions

i do not hear what i need to hear

it makes me very sad

there is no therapist

that will hear me

i have to be my own therapist

so i write this poem

to be my own therapist

and to keep my mind

from going insane

21st century hellscape

continuing its descent 

into madness.
