webbing in the fingers

in times of old
it was obscene
the character
the choice made
and history told
as they really
want you to think
that you are in control
placing implants
before we are born
who said we had to use force?
love not so as not to be loved
is this the way?
killing one for the other
which one is right?
the stone for the eye
sees no trouble
so we all go around like
living in a bubble
the present, this life
the here and the now
only to be words on pages
someday and maybe never found
and so not read –leaves us
to the pain
of any pain
and only feeling the feelings
through the facade
because the shame
of streams down your face
lowers your value
they all hiss
so the wise don’t know
that the simple understand
