Conscience

It’s a darkness within
most ignore it
think it’s not there

“So happy”
“So good!”
what would they think
Does it really matter…

Like cattle herded into the pen
the men and women
all follow one another
sheep in this din

Why?

Never step out of line
never commit a crime
never

the conscience is so loud

one step
that’s all it would take
just the one

but it will never happen
the conscience knows all too well

it will
it can
never
happen
