Moon as Witness

The moon and the stars
Are witnesses against us
Seeing every atrocity
All the travesties and heartbreak
And they will not be censored
In the witness chair
They will not hold back

Or forgive
No teleological reluctance
Or naturally impaired tongue
Recidivism will attest
To our abuses
Against the planet
And each other
Inside the dorry substance
Of humanity’s parched youth
