Looking For An Honest Man

When I shine my lantern
around the crowded streets,
looking for an honest man
and not finding one,

I ask myself why
has truth been surpassed
by lies,

why has genuine nature
been replaced by
hunger and guilding?

I shine my lantern
on every veneer
of a person

and then turn the light
on my own glossy surface,
reflecting everything,
but not allowing the light I shine
to penetrate any deeper.
