time and time again


clouds

The sun sets
on another day
in this golden kingdom.
Underneath
the beautiful brilliance
of an ever-changing sky
it’s business as usual.
The poor go hungry
the drunks snore loudly
the rich step proudly
leaders judge coldly
masses follow blindly
the beautiful choose carefully
the young dream hopefully
the old die slowly 
money spends quickly
days die daily
nights blaze nightly
couples gaze lovingly
and facts cloud reality
as the sidewalks swim
with liars
traffic travels
lost
rain falls
and waters drown
the baptized fools
who believe
they’re chosen
for a tomorrow 
that promises
a tonight that forgives
and a blanket
from the truth
of an ever-changing sky
that seldom does.
