Hey Mister

Form: Rondeau

Look in the mirror, dude, what can you see?
Mismatched promises of the things to be
Unanswered questions of reason and rhyme
Lost in the crevices of passing time
While battling against calls of destiny.

Unethically crude cuss names maybe
The strain of living in reality
But being yourself is never a crime,
Look in the mirror, dude.

See the warrior who fails to agree
Denying others the right to live free
Is the true path to the righteous sublime
See the warrior who knows that’s the crime
And stands with pride for all humanity
Look in the mirror, dude.
