underlying anger
which permeates every aspect of my being
music, a woman yelling on the street
an afternoon of sirens
otherwise, the world quietly marches on
it is going to take more than a smile to effect change though
on any front
we want a simplistic methodology
a checklist to ensure harmony
I can attest to the fact it doesn’t matter
peace sometimes comes with a price
but we knew that going in
what we didn’t know
is how much we can tolerate before morning
