Hollow Eyes by Nicole Surginer

The world is drowning in 
fluoride tainted waters. 
Poisoned with selfish intent, 
seeping unrest through humanity. 
Toxic potions of shallow vanities. 
Media fashioned tunnel vision, 
complacence clouded eyes. 
Hollow thoughts, empty hearts. 
Moths throw themselves 
to the maddened flame 
Stumbling cluelessly to a tune 
led by pied piper callers. 
Wolves clothed as sheep, 
drawing the flock to the pit 
I spit out the venom of treachery 
that my sight remain clear 
to keep the truths of love 
in my unwavering heart; 
To value human life, 
aware it can not be weighed 
on a political scale.
