Children are conceived and born while lives do fade and die,
locked windows are broken under the blue summer sky.
Wrinkled faces change with the latest of styles,
designer cars driven by injected surgical smiles.
Ivory towers shine under hand laid golden roofs,
money and wealth's abundant so there is your proof.
Clothing styles quickly never staying the same,
personalities quiver under pharmaceutical names.
Music on the radio changes with the times,
words tempos beats altering rhythms and rhymes.
Hair color and size recreate the latest keen fads,
more and more children live without a Mom and a Dad.
The poor become poorer while the wealthy gain more,
the elderly are sold out by a cunning Corporate whore.
The cries of the oppressed are creatively muted away,
by the power hungry command never feeling guilt nor shame.
The sick and dying are more forgotten with time,
there's more interest in saving rare vintage aged wine.
Politicians lie throughout centuries lies rearranging,
promising change while only their bank accounts changing.
One thing's consistent with deadly invisible fangs,
hurting others sharper than any hunger pangs.
This evil haunts and creeps with no need for contemplating,
for death is this pain never seeking the want for changing.
