I hear not most laughter

here, then,or after

it's the power and weakness that reaches my ears.

Hipocrasy alone

grapples in paper and form as

the wars purge and implore

my heart is absolutely torn

between the hate

between our fate

for our lives are each at stake.

It's as if the cars that drive and beep their

horns ignore

the silent screams of tears

because they're far too

busy to


for their song has a fare.
