Magpie 94 – Can’t you see?



Can you see it?

Can’t you see?

The price,

The price we’ve paid for these so called comforts,

Those are no longer comfortable.


Can’t you see it?

Painted on their faces,





Emotion dripping from their lips,

Sadness drowning pools from their eyes,

Can’t you see?

Why don’t you see?


Won’t you see it?

To set us free,

Break the chains of our discontent,

Seek love,

Find hope,

Embrace difference,

For conformity is killing us,

One coffee and

One sandwich at a time.


Can’t you see it?

Can’t you see?


You must!
