Smiling Faces

Smiling Faces

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

😱

"

Has evil come to stay

Can it not be uprooted

Are the supposed safeguards

No longer suited

 

Has it burrowed into

The hidden deep places

No longer disguised by

Pleasant smiling faces

He's burrowed in...hiding...avoiding his job...letting us all go to blazes.

Even before I clicked your title, I heard this old anthem of devilry in my mind, from back in the early 70's. The O'Jays version comes to mind. Since the "smiling faces" concept has been a scourge for years, I must point out what's new & twisted about the latest trend . . . it's so thoroughly business-as-usual, it's not worthy of noting. Everyone just lies & doesn't even bother to hide fake smiles behind face masks! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

This reminded me of the smiling villain. Shakespeare said one may smile, and smile, and be a villain". And all the Brutuses lurking around with daggers under their coats. Loved it!
