This Nice Society

Everyone is nice.

They paint smiles on their faces

And record pretty words

For a bad day.

Friend or foe

Engaged or tolerant

Who can tell the difference anymore?

Professional actors

Experienced conmen

Forced into the same game.

Children are not allowed to play;

They will sink

In the Dead Sea

Offering their flesh

To the greedy predators

Till there’s nothing left

To prove they existed.


Everyone is nice

But they only want clones,

Reflections that talk back.

Shattered mirrors

Frosted glass

Are shipped off and destroyed

To preserve this glass society

And each new mirror

Is polished with the same wax.
