Fake

Fake or not— something is amiss
Fake or not— blood runs out the veins
The appendage of doubt withers on the branch
Fake or not— the tree died in Paradise
Fake or not— pockets are sacked
Innocence suffers the fakery
Nothing changes but the fakemen
Fake or not— God has no face
Fake or not— there are natural facts
Presidents sign with a fake pen
A despot murders his kin
Fake or not— the flames of the earth
Blaze through the crust to the sun
Fake or not— the indigent go without shoes
Fake or not— time lifts the mask
Natural resources betray the rot at the core
Fake or not— a dream of peace is real
Fake or not— love is its own illusion
