Ostrich Society
© 1990, Roy Stucky

Freedom of information,
Acquired apathy.
God given rights,
Lost capacity.

Don't look.
It'll go away.
Avoid anxiety.
Ostrich society.
Closed mind.
Nothing to say.
Maintain sobriety.
Ostrich society.
Head-Sand calliope.

Truth is out there
Readily seen.
But the sand in our eyes
Makes it seem like a dream.

People in disguise
Hang by a thread,
But can't sensitize
Our buried head.

Don't look.
It'll go away.
Avoid anxiety.
Ostrich society.
Closed book.
Not a word to say.
Maintain sobriety.
Ostrich society.
Head-Sand calliope.

Chasing tarnished youth
We grow older.
Mocking vanished Truth
We grow colder.
Wicked machines fall
Upon the soldier.
Past the debutante ball
Ghettoes smolder.

Don't look.
It'll go away.
Avoid anxiety.
Ostrich society.
Don't look.
Don't fear.
Maintain sobriety.
Ostrich society.
Head-Sand calliope.
