There They Are Actively Hating


I’ve tried to listen

but the gap between me

and the other side widens everyday day


there they are

networking on the river bank

drinking THE cocktail of the day


here I am

drinking tea and reading a book

written by someone I’ll never meet

but know intimately by the end


there you all are

making rules for other people

confident they will never be you

keeping a lawyer in case anyway


here we all are

on a closed in planet

with interlocking systems

hell bent on keeping order

regardless of who gets in the way


Nero bickers as Rome burns

and even though their feet are burning

the other side deny the truth

blame me for not reflecting

there they are actively hating
