There's really no substituting.

 
 
I read today
of pain and ostracization  
I read today of hate, intolerance
and demagoguery
I read today of the incomprehensible
and the should be unfathomable  
beautifully iced of whipped
saccharinized sweetener  
 
Thinly disguising  
layers upon layers  
of pious indoctrination
and a piped veiled attempt
toward enlightenment  
 
I read today
that the meaning of equality
is not equal to everyone
I read today that love is not love
it's only for those chosen
I read today that my opinions and choices
aren't as important
and are fodder  
"a joke"
 
Laughs stream into permeating tears
sweetness turns an acrid sour
as calls of 'uniting differences'  
and finding 'humanity'  
second proceed
with the 'reality'  
of your life and your life and your life
(etc etc etc etc etc....)  
being called a mockery
in whole as well as in political belief
 
The truth, hidden inside
a confectionery delight,  
those kind with secret centers  
revealed only when cutting through  
 spilling forth all the cavity creating  
stomachache inducing
sickening sweetness  
that cause rot and decay
in hopes that very truth
stay hidden  
 
I read today that propaganda  
when cooked in the right recipe
becomes palatable  
and mistaken  
for honest sugar  
 
when it's all just coated of Aspartame.
