A Good Hard Look | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

The halo
is too hot

The sun
is burning righteous

The world
is on the edge

are marching strong

The TV
is spewing nonsense

The vibration
is out of tune

True believers
are in a frenzy

A collapse
is on the way

The sky
is filled with dark clouds

The rain
is acid laced

The minds
are calcified and stunted

The future
is sagging low

The New Age
is a pipe dream

The mirror
is full of cracks

The illusion
is staring back

never lie
