Blinders

I’ve seen circles around the city

Footprints printed on the skyscrapers

Scraping off the failed ambitious

And false contentment of its victims.

 

Encircled in a vicinity of vicious

360’s moving quickly pass being thankful

Pass tomorrow where joy was

Prematurely found.

 

 New promotions

Running perfectly through the motions

For emotions to run off

The next phase.

 

A form functioning as the any

Means necessary, necessary for

These predators pretending to

Paint smiles on all this hard work.

 

Still we’re hardwired to cling to

Abandoned buildings of hope;

Lapping us from dusk until dawn.

 

When morning arrives we’ll

Greet it with high hopes.

And hopefully find another rope to

Hang to hang from.

 

The eyes are open, but we only see in circles.
