A poem on my opinion of society's politics & the corruption that ensues! Enjoy + comment :)!

Life a puzzle of differential shapes,

Humanitys evolution derived from apes,

Callous and dark through the streets we press,

Unaware of our hazardous process,

The world is that of blistering corruption,

Never tried with an interruption,

We sit idly by and allow our world to rebel,

While societies greats remain high on their pedestal,

Equality, what does it even mean? Without life, decency or even respect its nothing but a simple contest,

A plague of ignorance, blind folding the rich,

What will show them we aren't just politics?

They stay revelling in their lavish abodes,

While children die just skin and bones,

A fairness so clearly of disregard,

But don't worry you'll be handed a small card,

So sit back and place the cross in the box,

And wait for the man that shall bring a social detox,

For this you may wait several decades,

But at least then your washing away the false facades.

I really like this poem, but it'd be a lot easier to read if you put it in a more conventional poetry format. You know, lines a stanzas.

Thank you very much & I did have it a norma format. However I posted it from my phones note pad and its compiled into a large paragraph -I'll edit when I come home from college later on today :)!x
