Dreams 2022

Happy Birthday
(6/9/2022)


keep
lying

keep lying
to your
children

fill
their little
minds
with fantasies

with society’s
trivialities

extraneous
events

empty
holidays

bachelor
degrees

the endless
myths
with which
we were
inundated
in our youths

perpetuating
our cowardice
to future
generations

keep lying
to your
children

hopefully
to busy
them

distracting
them
from discovering
that we have
failed

that we
continue
to fail
them
all
