I Guess

I guess they have to say,
“It’s for the greater good,”
for them to stand before
the mirror and not
see the decay
like Dorian Gray.

I guess they have to fool
themselves into believing
it’s for the greater good
for them to stand before
the mirror and not
see the ghoul
creating a political
cesspool.

I guess they have to lie
themselves into believing
it’s for the greater good
for them to stand before
the mirror and not
see wise mortality
and one who will die
by and by.

I guess…I guess….
