I stop asking why now

I stop asking why now
I ask is it right

It’s right
That they say
It’s right

But is it

Right
With a hollow shell
With emptiness
Within

A Paper full of right
Full of monsters
Saying the right thing
That right is right

In response
It is right
It is the right response
The mouth is right
The tongue is right
But what is the right thing?
Bottom line

Why
It doesn’t matter
Black and white
It is right
That it is right

Watching the live broadcasts from Parliament, I notice that a new saying has crept into the speech. when introducing a new bill or something they keep saying “it is right, therefor that we do this thing” or something similar. Of course, experience tells us that it is not always right, or that it can go wrong. It seems arrogance really to set themselves as knowing the right and wrong of everything, isn’t it playing god?
