Today's government preaches teamwork yet acts selfishly. Tried to understand the thoughts that go into being selfish through this play on words.

Empathy for the wicked marinated in greed
 
 
Feeling prisoner inside a societies ideals
 
 
Taking cues from martyrs of modern thought
 
 
Moments of clarity through terrors appeal
 
 
Memory atrophies in solitude and idleness
 
 
Views discriminate while others distraught
 
 
Living knowledge of opportunities missed
 
 
Alone in virtue, manipulation its power 
 
 
Massive lies gain sympathy and resist
 
 
Ignorant intellect play to savvy egos
 
 
Succumbed to charms given with ease
 
 
Yet all cease evil, scare like cowards
 
 
Say what you will of goals cherished
 
 
Must be ignored if action perished
