cause in effect

darkness is brewin’
growing ever more entrenched
flames are risin’
which no hoses can quench

the rumblin’ is louder
screams in collective ears
shots keep ringin’ out
accompanied by tears

trust continues to erode
chain the door – lock that bolt
people hurtin’, people in pain
on the edge of revolt

black v white, left v right
so many lines now blurred
how can we take care of each other,
when our voices are not heard?

smoky discontent
scars each morning’s dawn
all bets are off
now that the rule book’s gone
