Façades

– that all seem the same –

Façades 
         - that all seem the same -

You try blind
Façades game,
Front or hind
Seem the same,
As man’s kind
Some be worm,
Wriggle round
In fixed squirm, 
Won’t be found

And thus bound
Want to uncover,

Thru endeavour,
Hence compose
Its bent measure,
With baleful mind

Of greed’s assign 
Be without shame,
He’ll find the time,
To deploy his tricks
Meant keep us blind,
Thus be man’s façades
That all seem the same!
