There is an urge
to follow madness
during these days of power’s fist,
where shouting and violence
are sounds that hiss
from mouths of liars with egos
that know no bounds,
who lack regard
for hard times, for hunger,
sailing through life unscarred.
Where are you out there who follow,
who choose to dismiss
kindness, caring, and memories?
Have you forgotten the strong winds
that carry our democracy?
Take your head out of the hourglass;
time is running out.
