I Wonder…

“I wonder,” she whisper screams.

I wonder if anyone can hear?

If all ears are clogged with cacophony.

I wonder if anyone can see?

If all eyes are dim – all sight silenced with praise.

I wonder if anyone can speak?

If all lips are licked with lies.

I wonder if anyone can think?

If all thought is truncated by tricks.

I wonder if anyone can grasp?

If all hands are greased with greed.

I wonder if anyone can move?

If all feet are frozen with fear.

I wonder if anyone can be just?

If justice has been bludgeoned to death.

“I wonder,” says me with clarity.

“I wonder.”
