Cheated from the flames
Hope’s by the bedside
Sanity took the rest

Success and happiness intertwined
Fame has become hallowed ground
Twisting Aristotle’s frame at the sound

Honesty a convenient truth
In the absence of proof
Sincerity, a soar tooth

Trials and tests
Used to expound your worth
Nothing but a mark of birth

Principles a curse
Passed by those on high
To the masses in the dirt

Sinners and saints
So titled by reprobates
Is nothing grey anymore?

Society, a noble word misconstrued
Where the blind lead the blind
The shrink is both cure and King
