In a world whose governments and institutions can increasingly be defined as "Looting, and lies to cover looting" - it begs the question: When?
When do we start living up to our mission statements, our constitutions...our evolutionary imperative as sentient beings?
When the fates of the many
are no longer determined
by the greed of the few.
When the structures of power
no longer dismantle the spirit
and sovereignty of the vulnerable.
When the blood of innocents
no longer soak the hems
of the rich.
When drunken shouts of stadium victories
no longer drown out
the cries of unspeakable misery.
When sanity at last prevails and
indifference is no longer
the coin of our realm-
only then, will the myths and stories
of human potential
finally ring true.
