poetry by j matthew waters

there’s something in the air

what are we waiting for
to set the record straight
and make a concerted effort
to do what’s right

how can we not see
past our own imperfections
glaringly present
well before the common era
remarkably similar to today

we tell our children to live and learn
but fail to put them to the test
instead we invent new ways
to take control of everything imaginable
by whatever means necessary
and at any cost

february two thousand twenty
