So I Lie To Myself

Not all is well

In this tepid Hell

Frogs in a slow

cooking pot

Unaware how pleasant

is now

Unpleasant

And uncomfortably

hot?

So I lie to myself

Are we just stupid

Foolish

Or maybe just dumb?

That we can see

The wood for the trees

Eventhough

All the chopping’s

Been done?

Are we blind

Because we can’t

Seem to see

All the harm being done

To our precious families

Are we blind?
