Cynical

Too many talk without saying a thing
and too many listen
to the sounds that go unspoken
too many feel
the numbed fingertips of fallacies
while too many feast
on the blood of crooked crying streets

too many times have the innocent been maimed
too many times have the guilty never heard their name
too many times have the judges been persuaded that
the world works many mysteries
as if histories scars never sunk so deep

too many fires lay over the horizon
too many oceans sink beneath polluted populations
too many problems for a boy of seventeen
there’s just too little time for me
so excuse if I don’t seem
all that pleased…
