doing what needs doing without interference;
not easily done in the times of burning unrest.
mayhem in city streets, blowing up ill winds.
not knowing whom, what trustworthy.
poor folk getting poorer.
rich folk increase their wealth, untold.
but that's the way of things these days.
and has been for centuries, untold;
most likely for centuries to come, foretold.
what humanity needs is a good spanking
for letting things come to this.
we are all, all of us, to blame for this.
enough blame to pass around
forever and a day, forevermore.
