Twisted ugly world

I step back

I want no part of it

Close my eyes
to hide the injustice

But it screams
too loudly to deny

The falsities
pile up
continually

Pile up
obscuring anything
and everything
of beauty

And they sit back
and take it

Worse yet
they buy it

As if this
was the only option
for reality
