Poetry, Politics

Why do we

follow dictators and despots?
swallow leeches and crackpots?
shrug shoulders, turn the page?
shut our eyes, lock the cage?

purse our lips, as if to say
something real, then let it stay

unsaid-unread-unfelt-uncared-
unheard: thus remain
unhurt: fuss is fain
answered: just with pain,

my word.
