I watched you deflate
into guarded smiles
and empty eyes.
Where goes your desire?
Child, youth, innocence:
I’m sorry that I
could not shelter your ignorance
from ‘the real world’
the wretched world
that sick and sordid
peopled by Triviality, Filth and Ego,
who devoured Childhoods in the name of Adulthood,
who exsanguinated People for their propriety
who coldly murdered dreams while smiling lovingly,
because they do all that they do
in the name of “PRACTICALITY!PRACTICALITY!PRACTICALITY!”.
So. Child, youth, innocence: Where goes your vitality?
This one’s for the little people because their curiosity needs to be defended.
