We live lives Of fallacy Sleepwalking Oblivious Indentured slaves Endlessly Monotonously Going around and around The hamster wheel Powering someone else’s Flame. Parroting those Surrounding us Their diatribe Lulled by ignorance Sweet Lullabies Deadening blows Leaving no visible marks As we gorge Leftover morsels Their seductive charms Brainwashed and Blissfully unaware As we are Inevitably trampled Ground down To dust. Marionettes Pulled to and fro By dispassionate puppeteers Elites With a system rigged Unfair to most Stark disparity Their right of birth To maintain the status quo Intent to fulfil Every privileged desire. Time removes Unstitches The invisible strings That bind consciousness Unbidden thoughts Seep though I sense My surrounds With newly opened eyes I start To spot Needless disparity Injustices all around My mind It does Cause me to pause To assimilate These hidden tapestries No longer Beyond my Grasp. I see The world as if anew Layer upon layer of Nameless institutions Politicians Protecting Power and inequity Revulsion Fills my core How have we Allowed this To become our society? How could Our apathy Be so great? So many remain Cocooned in false narratives Playing another’s Game. It’s time To take a stand Break the chains The bonds that bind To protect What remains of Our land To stand up for those More invisible Than you or I To break the shackles On our minds Regardless of consequences To take a leap of faith And act As if our Very lives Depend on it For they surely do. Come. Do your worst.
We live lives of fallacy.
