Gauntlet.

From

birth to

death.

The gauntlet

run.

Staying alive,

ancient

course

once

laid out.

Running

the gauntlet.

From

physical

to mental

obstacles

evolved.

Survival

of the

fittest,

once

obstacles

defined.

Inundation.

Modernities

curse.

Inundation,

smothered.

Smothered

in information,

running

harder to

keep up.

Never,

ending

free flowing

information.

Flooding,

smothering

the mind,

crushing

the soul.

Flow

accelerating

denser,

continuously

denser,

the gauntlet’s

state now!

Runaway

train the

course

has laid

out.

Look

into their

eyes,

humanity

losing

its mind,

its soul.

Flying

off the

rails

civilization

soon

will be.

Best

turn off

the machines,

while

you still

can.
