The Masquerade (Poem)

hollywood_dees

This system has failed us.
Why are the highs so low?

Just look at all the stars above
Flashing shiny things at the world they loathe

Slavery is so fascinating
It’s the price we pay to fill a bottomless void

As they turn heads to bank their money
Distraction piles a moral debt

Living in a Disney show
It’s a small world after all

Subliminal sexploitations
Masked as wholesome joy

Get em while they’re young
They
‘ll never sway the path

Rebels without a cause
They
know not what they are

Life is but a dream
It’s a small world after all

These walls, these walls are all around
These walls are paper thin

This system knows no boundaries
Yet the boundaries are kryptonite

The truth that sets us free
is forecast of pain
That dwarfs the wars that mock the light

Life is but a masquerade
A dream within a dream

These walls, these walls are all around
These walls are caving in
