Silk scarf of conspiracy

Silk scarf of conspiracy

The silk scarf
has been placed
Over the breathing
ApparatusĀ 
Of my soul
With the intent
Of smotheringĀ 
OutĀ 
Any signs
Of a spirit
A self will
PerseveranceĀ 
or fighting
characteristics
that I may still
Posess.

Fear of
Knowledge
Ignorance
To truth
DrivesĀ Ā 
The weak
who have
Been politicallyĀ 
Empowered
To sit uponĀ 
The throne

IntellectualĀ 
greatness,
Thirst
To broaden
The narrow
TelescopeĀ 
That limits
Our view,
Is metĀ 
With contempt
As it threatens
the 2 digit
IQ's
Of thoseĀ 
Who
Hold power

SuppressedĀ  by a yoke
Of blinded
Faith,
the
Uneducated
Flock to
Graze upon
A scorched
Meadow
Called
ExistenceĀ 
hopingĀ 
To receiveĀ 
Some redeemingĀ 
Nourishment
In the end.

The outcome isĀ  apparent
You cannot
thrive
by being
led
by those
WhoĀ  cannot
See.....

HI Greg...I understand your frustration!Ā  It is the blind leading the blind in this world....and the Bible describes humanity as sheep needing a shepherd....and people can be like sheep....lost and scattered, not bright enough to know how to save themselves, following the butt in front of them in hopes they are lead the right way without questioning the system of the herd as a group.Ā  I think I would rather be the black sheep, even if ostracized, to know right from wrong and not be lead astray to be in the majority that blindly do it for acceptance.Ā  I do not understand this world at all.Ā  Ā You never hold back telling it how it is. xo ;)

Amen Brother.....I don't know why you would 'Tag' this as Abstract?!.....I see it as straight forward, in your face, bluntly-yet-poetically based TRUTH..... In EVERY sense of the word itself.... you have such a consistent voice when it comes to criticizing and squaring off against ALL the corruptness and miscarriages of justice that this world faces!!.....NEVER lose that passion GREG!!..... you're VERY good at it..... Born to do it!!.......ALL STARS!! & PINNED!!....... well penned my friend!!...... Miss speaking with You!!.......LOVE & ROCKETS!!........T xo.Ā Ā  : )
