CONSPIRACY WEARY
(7/18/17)

another
exposé

another
news report

another
documentary

of another
financial

institutional

governmental
corruption

disgrace

collapse

all due
to the need
of those worldly
benchmarks
of success

fame

power

riches

we can't
believe
the depths
of depravity
discovered

we shake
our heads

knowing
that this information
reaches us

after the fact

that while
we bemoan
such human
indecencies

new ones
are occurring
as we watch

as we listen

as we read

the continual
evolution
of sin

secretly building
tomorrow's
scandals

today
