Season of Glass

 

Reflections Of Leaders 

Three Columns of Polarizing Ideals

Faces Beaming, Such Bright Plastic Smiles

Minds already Set on the Next Set Of Moves Ahead

Yes, a Series of Chess Matches Doomed to an Eternity of Stalemates

Disconnected from the Masses, Certainly Not a New Development

Centerstage, Trained Podium Speakers Staring Intently into an Electronic Void

Vague Promises Made,  Fitting so Perfectly into Such Pretty Little Legalistic Mazes of Convenience

Such is a Product of Career Lawyers, Business Minds, and Military Type with Schemed Mindsets

Bought By Special Interests, Selling Out The Needs of a Populace

The Hungry, Those in Need, Youth Dreaming of that Perfect Tomorrow

Sold Out from the Beginning, Long Before Their Voices Translate into Votes

Break the Flawed Scheme into Millions of Scattered Pieces

Never to be Reassembled into Monster it is Today
