Eighteen democratic governments, I heard today,
Have been covertly opposed by the CIA.
“We have to stop this madness,” said the man
In the radio.
I was posting to the General Ledger at the time.
I had to stop.
At any given moment I can see the world’s pain
In the scenes that then surround me. But,
There’s danger in thinking and feeling and knowing.
I fill my mind instead with people’s
Postal codes: K7H 3N6
My dad says it’s always been like this -
I feel like every time’s the first time
When I stop and
Look at it.
