Civilized ~ #MondayBlogs

We value the mask
the polite turn
of face and phrase
that hides
venom and hypocrisy
we cherish the pretty package
while substance ceases to matter

We are the alchemists:
turning everything
to base metal
overlooking gold
in favor of what is easy

Raising a civilization
doomed to sink below
joining the Xanadu
that no longer exists

Teaching children
to be liars
at the altar
of appearances ~ Caroline A. Slee
