There are no war zones,
there are no burning buildings,
or people dying,

every word is true,
and the only emotion is happy,
no one's crying,

cameras only capture beauty,
not riots,
or blank, empty eyes,

life is perfect,
no one's murdered,
every citizen loves their government,

but every word I've written is a lie,
I hope when you read this,
you reply, "Yeah, right."

Inspired by the events in Egypt.

"Yeah, right." -  I LOVE this poem. It's like the song "Imagine." Great job! I hope this vision comes true!
