You’re standing in a place
removed from where it is,
a dissonance obtained
when you fell for shifty tricks,
a spiralling of sense
right down to the abyss,
you’re standing for a cause
with the idiots and pricks.

(Undulating underground,
inseminates your ambience,
an avalanche – a tiny hope,
an olive branch,
unthreading rope.)

You’re near,
I hear your sound.
I’m eager,
to see you go down.
The scurrying of thought
till bias is confirmed,
gymnastics you perform
just to reconcile your words.
Selectively optate
illusions of concern,
a semblance of truth
leaving everything unlearned. 

(Your terrain – deforested,
future going primitive.
You’re to blame, it’s all over,
your confidence,
a bulldozer.)
In the idiocy
or under the common ground,
spreading hideously
a tumour is going round,
infecting everybody,
the whispers are getting loud,
the morons are standing proud,
you watch as it takes hold.
The danger of a view
ingrained by bogus means,
the dogma isn’t true,
but you’re sticking with the team
and you realign your boundaries
to fit to your regime,
the landscape is adjustable,
no matter where you’ve been.
A fabricated world
inhabited by clowns,
you’re sticking to your view,
no matter what surrounds.
An ill-selected company
on treacherous common ground,
it turns out you’re insane –
I want you to step down.
