Poem: "You Tell Me That You Help the Blind"

You tell me that you help the blind 
But it's all a friggin' joke. 
A rabbit in a hat it is
Some mirrors and some smoke.  
It hurts my head to think about  
How long you've been this way  
Paralyzed and lost, you are,  
And generally afraid  
Of feathers, babies, pillows, candy,  
Water, money, sun  
Of fundamental things in life 
Including love.  
Harsh I am and harsh are these  
Words I have for you.  
But save yourself, forget the blind,  
Then later save them too.
