Tragic Trust

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 9:04 pm

Why do people
depend on other
people
when it is obvious
those people are
not to be trusted?

Why do people
keep stealing from
other people
when it is obvious
those people have
been totally busted?

Why do people
abuse other
people
when it is obvious
those people were
totally entrusted?

People use
then immediately
cruise
they abuse
and misuse
like it is
old news
thinking their
victim will
never accuse
with a smug attitude
thinking nothing
to lose
leaving them
penniless
singing the blues.

Why do many choose
to walk in
mindless shoes
even after their
offender has left
incriminating clues
when it is time to
come to grips
many only
excuse
when it is time to
cut the strings
they naively refuse.

It is sad to see
people
depend on other
people
when it is obvious these
people
cannot be trusted.
