Immediate Needs

Things should be clean,

But unseen

Construction of a military sheen

Whether it’s right or wrong

we have needs

Our questions must be answered

is truth important

or is comfort more so

Hold our hand

Tell us it’s going to be alright

Your control lingers nearly out of sight

barricading us from our own fright

You know what’s best

and we just won’t understand

there’s no need to test

because the ego of the few outlives the rest.
