Lie.alty

from your brown-nosed haven
you watch us flail about
and polish
your Judas coin collection
with nimble fingers.

never count
on a coin-counter.

Role Models?!

blindly trusting
– even those you are supposed to –
can
burn…
bite…
and cut you in two
but the hope
of the little child inside
still looking for
a proper parent
will always remain.

i am so sorry
you are still caught
in such a disturbing, malicious web.
