Two Pairs Of Glasses


how 2 pairs of glasses can change the world

justice, liberty is it here?
or is it as i fear,
nothing but a figment of our imagination,
in this wretched wasteland of a nation.

liberty needs glasses
and truth hard to hide,
so does justice by her side,
Need a pair of glasses.

The rich let their food go to WAIST,
while the poor have more than a rumbling tummy,
for indeed they are very hungry,
letting nothing go to waste.

Tell me is it fair?
For the rich to do as they wish, for they can easily frame,
just about anyone and let them take blame
tell me is it fair? ? ? ? ?

voices of the poor not be heard,
are they really as deaf as their eyes are blurred?
or is it only the voice of the green,
that can be heard and seen.

in vain, i see no reasonable sense,
in this absolute nonsense
i know life is unfair
for there are things truly hard to bear.


truly if someone cares,
then rid us of these nightmares
and just spare
two pairs of glasses or even just a pair.

A better place it would be,
if just one of them can see
good from evil, wrong from right,
.....................if only they had a perfect sight.

The hour yet bears for thee and me
