Beyond COVID-19

We all wore masks before we wore masks
Masks that hid the lies in our eyes
Masks that concealed the trauma in disguise
The mask that hides a country’s failing
Of over 2,000 children that go missing daily
Masks that cover spoken deceit
Masks that allow state corruption to defeat
The mask that strips us of our rights
With the 1% who rule our lives
Pulling the strings like we’re marionettes
Suffocating our pockets until we’re out of breath
Masks that hide any sense of integrity
Masks that cover more than just one “invisible enemy”
And angels crying as immorality preys on
We all wore masks before we wore masks
