mindful

don't talk to me in platitudes
about love and peace
or some schmaltzy new age hippy shit,
it ain't gonna happen.

new year?
what new year?

tell that to the dying
starving
homeless
impoverished.

here we go again
blazing a trail of corporate glee
unmindful of the others
as we focus on ourselves.

will we never learn the lessons taught us?
will we always place the same crosses in
the same old boxes?
will we forever more be captive to commerce?

silver and gold and tokens of guilt.

the new year brings change
so let's live it
live it like we mean it
