“Instead of politicians, let the monkeys govern the countries; at least they will steal only the bananas!” Mehmet Murat Ildan

Something's Off

It's about the money but the money's 
just a symptom of what lies rotting at 
the core of the apple and no amount of 
spin will sweeten that fruit or make 
fresh that which is fermented and still
we force ourselves to believe it and 
consume it as if it is ambrosia out of 
this world and soon the rot will mould
and consume itself making it even 
harder to swallow but until we stop
believing in the emperor's decaying 
core we will never taste the promised
land.
