Progress, growth, expansion: Cycles, only that. They never last, just grow and die, Their concepts unreliable, Their goals so pliable They ‘rat you out,’ Attack you back Unless you are prepared, Scared underneath it all, Aware of what a pattern leads to.
Take heed of trends – They end. Did someone say once long ago To keep your lantern lit? It’s so.
The treacherous illusion May say all is fine. See each headline, every fact as sign - Then go forth bravely.
