This Effervescent Sham

How can you tell

That the world is on fire?

If you can’t tell the rot-gut bottle

From the top shelf one that’s higher?

Why do we listen

To all the political hacks?

Have we never learned

From their past idiotic syntax?

Our relationships often fail

Quite often we do not learn

Find yet another similar situation

Find yet another one to burn

Hidden from a conscious effort

The duly noted quest

Distinguishable only by clear thought

In the muddied waters of the professed

We the human beings

Romp and trample about

To never learn from our failures

How can we possibly tout?

The braggart’s and peacock’s

Fumble themselves away

Never truly noticed

Despite the latest soiree

The talented one’s will see

This effervescent sham

What must they do?

If indeed they can?
