The White Road


A man walks down a white road.

He sees a child fallen on the street corner.

 He tries to assist, she's too afraid- of what?

He sees a man with a sign

- black with white letters-

"in need"- of what?

Fuck off.

He walks on.


 He sees a broadcast of a country

 in need. Of what?-

of peace, prosperity.

 He can't help. He

 moves on.

He sees a man in need of

 what?- help.

He won't  can't help, he's

defenseless, he

moves on.  


A man returns

home, but  now  the road

is black. Turned

dark by the night.
