The Smile


By Liam Flanagan

Look me in the eye and tell me the truth
Rooted
In your language contradiction and vagueness
Safe us
From your lies and fake smile
Try
To deceive and hoodwink
Think
About trying to go through life with ambiguity and spin
Thin
Is the line between integrity and hypocrisy
Bureaucracy
Tying red tape around the neck of the people trying to breath
Greed
Brings you to the surface of the swamp you inhabit
Dragging your pray underwater to drown out the calls for
Equity
and
Equality
