Can You Hear The Silence?

 

Can you hear the silence in a dark and empty room,

Or see the stars sharing smiles behind a shining moon,

When wonder lays cold, lays slain, within a cynic’s tomb.

And innocence, corrupted, foul, sings a drunken tune?

 

Do you see the emptiness on crowded city streets,

Or hear the beggar’s rattling cup while politicians speak,

While hope is touted like a drug by elected lying cheats,

And everywhere the bully boys kick around the weak.

 

Can you feel your freedom when the slogan’s “cops are tops,”

Or speak your mind in a land of lies ruled by a bragging fool,

As your heavy chain of wants and needs grows and never stops,

‘Til in your grave alone you lay, your shroud, the Golden Rule.
