Not Worthy of a Title

Gloss it over,
and we won't have to feel bad.
We won't have to feel
connected to it.

Cover it up
with words like it's...in...our...own...
best...interest...

If you don't mind,
we'd rather not see
what's underneath the cover.

If you lift it so
the whole picture is exposed,
we might be held accountable
for our actions.

We can't have any of this...
This is not our definition of justice...
Our definition is new, it's
twisted...

Ours is to keep the cover on,
cover down, keep it hid
cover it up,
gloss it over.
