[I will believe]

I will believe
against all evidence
that men are good
that by and large
they are elevated
and deeply satisfied
by simple gestures
of solidarity

twice blessed indeed
is all compassion –
healing the healer
enriching the giver

I will believe
against all evidence
that this is so
because I know
to what extent
men’s minds have been warrped
and bent by the strategies
of cleverly camouflaged tyrants

I hear the reigning tyranny
in every tv jingle

the majority are brainwashed
into believing they want and need
that in their fears and self-doubt
they may come to satisfy
a tiny minority’s unending greed
