Killing Time

The paper stares right back at me
Taunting with its whiteness
Shadows once evaded now are
Hiding from the brightness

Memory is dull right now and
Dampened with emotion
Desperate to cling on to
The illusion of devotion

Telling tales inside my mind of
Self-deceit; chicanery 
Akin to the deluded minds
That oversaw our slavery

Subterfuge abounds around the
Politicians and lawyers
Their clumsiness itself reveals
Incompetence destroys us
