If Only

Right now hypocrisy is sincerity

Right now kindness is an irregularity

Right now ambiguity is clarity

Right now loyalty is a rarity

Right now wrongfulness is right

Right now ignorance is a light

Right now despondence is delight

Right now compassion is a blight

If only evil were not to breed

If only propaganda would not mislead

If only honesty would succeed

If only happiness were guaranteed

If only goodness were not calculated

If only avarice would not be advocated

If only contradictions would be eradicated

If only our world were uncomplicated
