CYCLE OF POCKETS

By May 1, 2021 3,006 Comments

Is a hoax, just a hoax?
When they give us what they stole from us.
With kindness and generosity.
Oh! A cycle of pockets.

Our eyes wide open.
Insane not we are.
But we still enter in their traps.
Oh! A cycle of pockets.

We then consume anything they bring.
While in toxic or non-toxic.
Good or bad as their sycophants.
Oh! A cycle of pockets.

We discover this too late.
For four recurring years.
We suffer oppression, exploit and death.
Oh! A cycle of pockets.

We console ourselves and conclude it’s nature.
That like rain comes after people die of drought.
Just like our leaders who come after we suffer.
Is a hoax, the cycle of pockets?
