Why do honest people always suffer?
From this, what can we infer?
Why is truth always suppressed?
And truthful people oppressed?
Why are innocent people cheated?
And corrupt people, from power, not unseated?
Why do dishonest people thrive?
While honest ones, to succeed, strive?
Why are simple people betrayed?
And truth, ruthlessly pared?
Why are people so unfair?
Except their self interests, for none, they care!
Why is the world getting from bad to worse?
Is it a blessing or a curse?
