bare-faced

Scanning 
anxiously 
around each 
every corner 
adrenaline rushes 
the aisles Pac-Man runs 
you try to evade 
but they appear 
unnerved 
bandits without masks 
tiptoeing across your path 
grabbing that which you 
physically-distanced 
are looking for 

outlaws of compassion 
standing 
delivering 
exhaling bare-faced 
they mock
ridicule, jest 
at whose expense? 
those exposed 
who have no choice 
unwittingly allied 
bandits without masks 
do them little service 
heartless 
cold blooded smiles
