Don’t tell me this society is evil

What is irrational fear?
Is it the fear a child feels?
Or the fear of an adult,
who doesn’t know what news is real?

In a society of false advertisement,
the ones who lie pull ahead.
While those who seek truth,
move forward, afraid to tread.

Riots destroy society.
Murders break families.
Wall Street gets rich.
Politicians pass helpless policies.

Meanwhile-

A pastor calls for peace.
A black panther organizes youth centers.
A coffee shop donates profits.
A 70 year old man mentors.

Don’t tell me this society is evil.
Society isn’t evil, it elects evil.
