In the news anchors screaming their heads off
about the drunk actor but never mind
the extravagant alcohol of the party later.
In the mother who says
“Daughter, be faithful.” but never mind
It isn’t her husband’s face she sees in bed.
In the politician who slept in the farmer’s cottage
And then had those clothes dry washed.
Oh, never mind the wise sage preaching celibacy and
seducing brainwashed willfully-weak devotees.
Never mind that the writer who speaks of freedom
Paid off that kid to clean his bathroom
and then told him his parents were lazy
while his own son got stoned.
And never mind the poet who states
All this like she isn’t a hypocrite herself.
God save us from damnation.
