Eyes watching and ears listening

Ideals capsizing and ideas conspiring
Thoughts sinking and dreams drowning:
Drops fallen and dusts rising
Hearts broken and love forsaken
Time fleeting and hopes beaten
Foundations shaken and promises broken
Questions asked and answers hidden
Souls scared and faces masked
Limbs amputated and hands hanging
Poets lonely and people forgotten
Cheap are the words said
Costly are the price paid
Walls raised and boundaries laid
Faux rules made and reality faked
The list goes on and on
the truth we hoard and the lies we flaunt
the depressed we condemn 
the guiltless we blame
humanity is mad
Aye! Nobody cares!
