You Lied to Us

You told us you couldn’t.

You swore that you wouldn’t.

You said it was impossible

To change that much that fast.

You called the rest of us dreamers,

Idealist, unrealistic.

You laughed at us.

Then, in a matter of days,

You spent more to retrieve

The unsustainable past

Than we asked you to invest

In a sustainable future.

If you get your grasp on your

Precious present

Again, don’t lie to us again.

We need your new realization:

That when crisis hits,

What seemed impossible

And unthinkable

Becomes inevitable

And unavoidable
