I feel the darkness nearing
and the imminent collapse
of order, and it’s searing
each overwhelmed synapse
with smoldering shadows of chagrin
for no one sees the mess we’re in—

believing lies as truthful
condemning facts as hate
while poisoning the youthful
with pills so they’re sedate
if we don’t teach them loving ways
too soon we’ll face the final days.
