Light of Irony

You taught us well since childhood

You showed us what was good

But now I am confounded

Maybe I just misunderstood

All those lessons and all those virtues

That we cannot afford to lose

And I feel disappointed

When they don’t apply to your shoes.

It seems unfair that you can say

Anything you want, in any way

But when we have to speak our minds

You shut us off; it is not okay

It seems unreal that your love is

More expressed at times through material gifts

Because there is love in many kinds

That we really need more than all those gifts.

When in struggles, you say words of comfort

But sadly you treat money like a sport

So you play and play until the debts

Become your enemy and your cohort

When will you ever realize and see

That somehow you have hurt us all indirectly

Try to look back on your steps

And change somehow, dear light of irony.
