Cruel Charade

The polite word is contrarian
The real word is hypocrite
Neutral on one bad policy
You’re all in on another
The status quo is injustice
But you embrace it all the same
Challenges to your narrative
Are met with hostile nonsense

You maintain this cruel charade
By disappearing all the evidence
Offering up an illusion
Even you know is a lie
Lashing out at the truthtellers
With laughably false accusations
Offended by a single word
That demolishes your whole perspective
