Time Capsule

In these dark and dangerous time
We find ourselves living in
It is hard to focus
On what is really going on

Too much noise
Too much confusion
Too many lies
Too many deaths

What would be
The symbol of these times
Would it be a TV set
Spewing forth propaganda,
24/7 gaslighting lies

Would it be the simple mask,
And a vial of covid shots
And a picture
Of the thousands
Of corona ghosts

Would it be a gun
And a bible
And the dead victims
Of the rampaging gunmen

Or will it be nothing
Nothing but the silence
Of the dying world
