Through tinted glass we look at the problems of our world.
Tinted against them as if they never happened.
Through tinted glass we see only the good and happy.
Not the innocent smitten with the evils of the world.
The rulers of our nations and governments are looking through tinted glass.
They only see their golden paths before them.
Not the poor and homeless.
Who are as ants to be trodden on along the path of life.
Through tinted glass we see crime, as never seen before.
We overlook the injustice and futility of our justice systems.
We see murder, pain and conflict on the nightly news.
But politicians are trying to ban violent videos. WHAT HYPOCRACY!
But alas human kind cannot see this.
As they darken the truth of our Earth’s immanent destruction.

For we are looking through, STAINED GLASS WINDOWS.
