The Weary Man / Crystal Matteau

 
The Weary Man

While beggars grieve you rise,
discarding anew their cries.
Caring only for your name,
renouncing compassion for fame.

Oppressing indifferent minds,
captured by whitewashed binds.
While fading hearts reminisce,
turn your eyes away from this.

Forsaking liberty unaware,
of burdens destiny may bare.
Avert your arctic gaze once more,
you disregard and ignore.

Stay your self-righteous plea,
pompous in privileged glee.
You enslave the defiant again,
casting aside the weary man.
