Lie To Me

When leaders become violators of human rights

Using their lagging conniving techniques

To manipulate, motivate, and ensorcells

Those who are ignorant or lack intellectual acumens

To lead themselves out of a rut created by our systems

Of economic growth that preside with the material worlds,

We, the people, become their Puppets, thoughtless.

Politicians’ speeches today contain content that uses

Demeaning, derogatory, even vulgar contents

That empower one race or religion over others!

Why, why do we still follow these creatures of dissention?

Why don’t we permit ourselves to be humane and lead to a graduation

Of compassion, empathy, understanding, and humanization

Of our beings? Let us express our beliefs freely,

Without rancor, hate, or division!

Man’s abhorance for what s/he doesn’t acknowledge

As accurate, real, truly verifiable is what is limiting

His progress ethically, for s/he seems to be regressing

Into polytheism and empowering scientific knowledge

Over values that teach humanity not to stay the course

Of being altruistic to their own variety and difference.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
