Civil Lies in Civil Eyes

We have murdered morality and raped reality.
Every chicken wants to crow before they grow.
Our boys are hunters and our girls flaunters. 
The future is forgotten and backwardness begotten. 
Our fathers are scavengers and our youths avengers.
Our mothers are murderers and our wise men wanderers. 
Character disorder is the new order.
The sun and stars sink as the whirlwind winks.
We have nabbed nature with our cruel culture.
I see the spurious spills from the hill of ills.
Listen echoes of errors and tantrums of terrors.
The king of the kingdom is on the throne of thraldom.
Workers of wisdom are sacked from stardom
because weed and wine make them famous and fine.
There is battle between civil right and moral rights. 
Adam and Steve neglects beautiful Ada and Eve,
they are declared man and knife in a wedding without a wife.
Must we be lost at all cost?
Youths crave financial freedom and social stardom:
the making of mindless millionaires and brainless billionaires.
Real value is missing while ponzi plans are kissing.
Beautiful ladies are nude, bold boys are rude. 
We view our naughty needs with the goggle of greed...
before the sun sets and life begins to regret
my pen will has a tale to tell like the jingling bell:
I see civil lies in our civil eyes.

To be continued...
