Pile of Buttons


All strung together

With an extremely strong tether

But each has its say

On issues facing us today


One proclaims peace

For war to cease

Another promotes love

Pure, from Him above


Some ask to let slaves free

Crying with their inaudible plea

Others attempt dirty jokes

A few deem it all a hoax


But if you pull on the string

By unraveling, you will bring

A chaotic twist on humanity

That will cause vast insanity


For one relies on another

Attached like sister to brother

One by itself cannot condone

Facing the cruel world alone


Need to talk?
