So Many Words


They come to most forums
Say many words
Coiffed with intimations of home
Empty, ruling class promises.

Mass media blasts
Ghost messages in color
Insincere content
Meaningless, vacant, robotized.

The ruling class steals human dreams
Ignores real pleas from common angst,
Talks over essential needs
Shuts down the cries from silent voices.

So many words
Fake understanding of obligation
Homeless, hungry, sick people
Have no words, not even letters.

— Kathy Powers
