Toil

7/13/21 Truth is I must just say it Because I've been feeling frustrated People and animals tortured and subjugated Over something "sacred" Or from humans being dumb while full of nothing but hatred In a world infatuated with money, sex and oil Endlessly I toil Because what I do foils My success, even when I get the spoils Been a life of turmoil So arrogant and disloyal Yet so proud to call themselves royal Seeing it from all angles like gargoyle(s) It's all starting to make my blood boil Near venomous snakes in a coil Atop freshly spread soil Might've happened in your dreams In reality it's not always what it seems Of what you saw on T.V. screens As well as behind the scenes Yet it also could've gone better than expected Taking a turn in a different direction While teaching you a lesson When you were feeling disrespected Neglected And rejected The outcome may or may not have been effective Causing zero or a a change in perspective While doing nada or working towards a peculiar objective All the while knowing, it's not all truly cemented Here one minute gone the next second Have good intentions Regardless of it not always being accepted And others showing aggression Stay sharp and protected In a place that can be demented Help was or was not requested Folks quick to play detective The culprit did or did not get caught and arrested
