Oh dear, it doesn’t matter because they said no.
Four people in different rooms
with phones in their hands
and thoughts in their heads
that they are trying to suppress.
They are hurting underneath
the smiles and faces which gleam.
They blurt out things that they do not mean
and hurt the hearts of the glossed-over faces they meet.
They are dishonest and keen
to despise when the slate is clean.
Hearts of mortar they hide
by accompanying the blind.
I sit and observe
their pacts build and crack.
Lawsuits are filed and lawyers remain unpaid.
Changes are made but not sustained.
No injustices were done
to the ones with phones in their hands.
A choice was given to improve
and they said no.
