YOU KNOW THEM

If I dare to show them my thoughts
The world would surely retort
If I dare tell them what is on my mind
The world would say I’m not being kind
If I dare do to them what I feel
The world would surely appeal
And so I ask
Who else wants this task?
let it not be recorded in history
That the blind couldn’t see
That the lame couldn’t walk
And the dumb couldn’t talk
The world clamors for peace
Yet no one trusts the police
We all keep silent
So the perpetrators are unrepentant
Indifferent
Somewhat arrogant
Insolent
Can’t they hear the cries of the innocent
Can’t anyone mete out judgment
Justice has become impotent
There’s growing resentment
But no complaint
No living Saints
I wish I could tell them what’s on my mind
But mankind
Isn’t ready
Not with this present psyche
One day they’ll see
Real authority
Real activity
Unity
Till then
Let them count their tens
And play in their dens
We are watching them with our pens
Even on weekends
Clucking hens
