Where do these people hide
The ones who take advantage,
The ones who prey on others,
The ones who live in the shadows of morality.
How do they manage
Rising to power,
Rising in celebrity circles,
Rising to the top of political parties.
I know how they hide and manage
We allow them with our gullibility,
We allow them with our partisanship,
We allow them with our fear.
When do we stop hiding and start
Making our votes more than me versus you,
Making our virtuous ways equal to that we profess to expect,
Making humanity mean something again.
