oh sweet agony,
cover me in darkness
and feed my despair.

your single-mindedness
numbs my wretched life
and amplifies the longing.

lead me away
to beautiful places
and unfulfilled dreams.

you are the gateway
for my soul.

"don't let it happen"
independent minds
and critical thinkers
led to the gallows
and burnt on stakes.

but without dissent,
valid or not,
there is no progress,
just stagnation.

life is too easy
and people complacent.
numbed by gimmicks
that steal our time.

a downward spiral
of mediocracy ensues.
all leading to a
tyranny of the few
and ****** revolutions
when their lies collapse.
