I am the smoke rising,
Twisting and undulating out of structure fire and madness.
I am the lies on the reverend's tongue,
Preaching for money, not happiness.
I am the bullet hole in the innocent man,
Leaking out life.
I am the shattered glass,
Broken in strife.
I am the hungry beggar,
Kicked to the ground.
I am the crooked cop,
Beating minorities down.
I am the politician,
Lying to himself.
I am society's worst enemy:
I am society itself.
