United We Once Stood

Perception
is everything

Your reality
exists in
their delusion

Their fantasy
has become
your fact

Only the
ignorant
understand
what the
geniuses
have to say

Forget what
you’ve learned
since the world
began to change

You were taught
nothing but lies
by those who speak
the solemn truth

They spew
sugar coated
sickly sweet
aphorisms
even they
do not
believe

You may
speak out
but only
in silence
you are
not welcome
to be heard

They try to hide
the fools
they truly are
with transparent
attempts
to extrapolate
and deceive

Nothing
more than
breath wasted
time squandered
beneath the guise
of progress

Breeders of
destruction
suffocating
what could
and what should be

Mindless yes men
hide beneath
masks of honor
and truth
and trust
without intention
to change

Senseless sheep
promise freedom
as they herd
precious little lambs
to the wolves
for slaughter

Perception
is everything
