new faces –
we dress now in a new skin
nothing else has changed.
The raw boards
lie on the table

put to use. The promise of
three parallel lines.

298 is so true. And we continue to be deceived. (K)
Yes. Over and over again.
The first reminds me of politics – same faces in new dresses!
Yes, I agree. It seems even if the faces change, too, they are hard to tell from the old faces!
So very true.
Both poems are excellent. I can think of several people of the type described in the first poem.
Thank you. Yes. Too often.
