Crying alone

As the world breaks into pieces

As the vaccinated appear superior to those who can’t get vaccines

As the ones who have access, decline it

I am crying alone

As the developed shun the developing

To their way to churches, temples and mosques

As the missiles get longer ranges and the politicians less so

I am crying alone

As the academics fight with each other

And the politicians make out and then do insider trading

As policy deteriorates to dress-making

I am crying alone

As the supreme judge asserts his independence

As the “Rhodes Scholar,” plots the next take down

As the criminal attempts to wipe his record

I am crying alone

As the cathedrals of knowledge stand in line for handouts

Well optimized to be first in line

And win law suits against apparent racism

I am crying alone

It appears that I will be crying for a while

As the elite drink champagne and hire limos

And those less connected seek meaning in their lives

Perhaps it is time to stop
