You’re uncertain why
Every day you watch, it comes
Snaking along invisible
poisoning the home
It clutches you by the jaw
dripping darkness into minds
settle in, shut down inner light
Thoughts bubbling with despair,
watching too much TV
then feel strange wondering if you’re crazy
for questioning 'reality'
Ah, everyone has a dilemma your taxes never fix
until you recognize the game is rigged
there’s no coming back from this…
Okay, just wait for the next smooth operator savior
All that power behind podiums
talking, important papers,
official seals, doublespeak
It’s election season, remember?
Weapons, race, life, Christ
"Are you offended yet?
Yes? Great, vote for me!"
Ugh! It’s dripping on me
It settles inside on a mission to distort minds
producing shadows where there once was sun
establishing uncertainty where I once was strong
I must let go, sever the power
I’m going to live my life
With a peaceful,
Thank you kindly! Much appreciated. 😊
