We tread in place around our world
Not paying attention to our behavior
Yet we continue to cast judgement on those around us
Who are we…a savior?
Losing focus on our manner
We just might play by the selfish rule
Looking to get what’s ours
Who do we really befool?
Hard lessons must be learned
Before the behaviors get set and gel
By example we must lead
By example we must dispel
We prompt up each other
We support our creed
As we can fail each other
If we look only to our own need
The seduction of attention
Is a very curious thing
It can profoundly change us
Lead us to self-worshiping
I know of my folly
I have spent time on this road
It doesn’t get us any further
This is what I forebode
To be honest
We must see not our differences but our similarities
To recognize the landscape
To recognize the solidarity
Many factions will not agree
Many factions are bereft
Look to the Roman Emperors
Murdered by the Senate or Praetorian Guard’s Cleft
History often repeats
Many people are still much the same
Despite new rules and new societies
Many still operate under this peculiar game
When will we grow up?
How many more centuries will it take?
Forgive us our misdirected energies
Forgive us our folly that we forsake
