MMXIV by Charlie Sellings

Minor distinctions between right and left,

A thoughtless democracy: an answerless test.

The power to influence, ability to control,

Barely significant, if majorities fall.

Freedom defined by how much it costs.

Future defined by how much is lost.

Money is opportunity, not happiness or faith.

Economical morality, leading humanity astray.

 

Minor distinctions between right and wrong.

Ethical apathy, the end has begun.

Empty questions inspire empty replies.

A political template: invisible lies.

Equality belongs to those who believe.

Captured ambitions, disguised within grief.

Here comes a candle to light you to bed,

And here comes a chopper to chop off your head.
