Captain Suck

I watch them

these people in my life

i see them struggle

as they creatively lie

I watch these people

as their hearts numb

corrupted by anger

shattered by shame

I watch these people

as they bottle up hope

while they try to create

a glitter of hope

As I watch these people

I try my level best

To never give false hope

Makes you wonder how much we watch and look away from in this world!

I have a feeling in whom you are writing about Burton. I like the message your poem is trying to convey.
