Expendable Extra Ligaments
As valiant words hold together a façade
they govern the way a society reacts;
And one as frail as my own
Filial love, no longer in place
when apathy replaces the pride once held,
remorse was forgotten too many years ago
Significance as well.
Misfortune comes in 24-packs
Truth in 6
And the hands we hold,
Are the hands that hold us down
