“Somewhere Sorry”

I miss the Vegas of my childhood
seedy, yet stylish

Now the city is sold, leaving nothing special.
The exact same way apologies are hollow.
apologies are hollow

somewhere
"sorry" was not a stock footage phrase
doing things
well- expected commonplace
some do dare
to stand behind their names
they know when they’re right
and they know when to change.

I miss personality
Flaws frank and flawlessly
I miss people who aren’t brochures
for their faith or political party.
Who independently research
before they protest or acquiesce

Sometimes “tactful”’s
just a synonym for “asshole”.
Sometimes “tactful”’s
just a synonym for “asshole”.

The responsible party’s never a person
When something goes wrong, the answer’s redundant
Society, media, drugs and government
Something so big it can’t be punished.

somewhere
"sorry" was not a stock footage phrase
doing things
well- expected commonplace
some do dare
to stand behind their names
they know when they’re right
and they know when to change.
