Who To Believe

What do I have to do
To be accused of
Robbing a bank and shooting a cop?

Seems far fetched
That I’d be framed
For my poetry or outspokenness.

Why would the cops
Draw guns on innocent people
And shoot them down?

Seems all too true
In many parts of the country
These last few years.

I reckon I don’t know
Who I should believe,
Those in power or those stealing it.

Believability is too hard
To come by these days
And I have zero trust for most institutions,

Although, I’m not robbing banks
Or pissing off the cops.
Hopefully, I’m safe from both.
