Misdeeds

I’m not the one who knows
what is going on
but I can see something’s happening
in fact
it’s right there in the open
where the whole world can see
consequences are selective
whose misdeeds will truly have to pay
who of the rest gets to just walk away
until the movie ends
credits scroll up the screen
and the soundtrack solemnly plays
walking out of the darkness
we return to the bright light of day
where the news headlines blur
what was a cinematic play
from what is really happening
in the usual way
in front of our eyes
in oh so many ways
despite all the outrage
good people repeatedly convey
incriminating evidence
vividly on full display
how can there be so few consequences
for the guilty who walk free today?
