Have you ever noticed that when something unusual turns up, you are immediately confronted with a moral problem?~T. H. White
My friends urge me to be heroic,
to soldier on, to be stoic while
the Grand Human Experiment goes wild
gene manipulation unreconciled
with common sense or any reins. The change
forced on us, willy nilly, quite deranged.
Illegal, immoral, unneeded masks
foul poisons aswirl, propaganda tasked
with new realities, unfounded lies.
Impoverished spirits, minds dulled, lost to skies
of basic truth. They’re all boxed in. The screens
keep them entranced. I’m outside in the green
willing to chance meeting a human. Drones
abound in these strange realms. Evil at helm.
With each breath, love acclaim and reject
fear, malicious consequences reflect
the choice to raise my voice. For now it seems
I hold the spear of righteousness. My dreams
reveal my sovereign power rising strong
uttering here and now my sacred song.
