Entrances And Exits Tunnels And Light. - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i do not really think
that when you are making the headlines that you made it.
there is more to be at the front page.
it is just once
there could be another.
but this is the mask of society's pleasures.
behind the page is another story.
the story of daily survival.
what help you can give to appease the anger of the masses.
what food to serve for the hungry
what comfort is there for the ugly and the unmentioned
what life is there beyond the films
what disappointment is there lingering in the system.
after all it is not the beauty queen that really matters
but the one executed for some worthy causes.
it is not independence
but it is the interdependence of all these links
chains and locks
entrances and exits
tunnels and light.
