Move The Movement

Money changes hands
Reputations ruined
Perhaps not
For some
Will join the movement of the moment
Espouse with praise its existence
Backed with full support
In an attempt to lessen the sting
Of abuse perpetrated
Many years ago.

Whether it’s a sign of redemption
A cleansing of sins
Or just a clever ruse to change the narrative
I can’t judge
Not my prerogative
I wasn’t present
But when you’re called out eventually
Please cease with the phony pretense
That someone in a position of power
That you hate with contempt
Deserves far more criticism
For essentially the same act you allegedly committed
As you preach to us mere mortals
On how to be a man
Yet the physician refuses to heal thyself.

You can have all the money
The beautiful wife
And all the eye popping possessions
But let’s face the facts
No one would give you the time of day
If you weren’t well known
Because a song or two
Won’t make up for a sordid past
One can bury
Repress and deflect for so long
Inevitably you’ll have to see the ugly truth.

P-7/7/19.
