Poetry #19: enter, stage (life) left.

[This was originally published in F.U.C.K. poetry Issue #19. The publish date is approximate.]

Angels with wings made of smoke and mirrors.
False experts in a new technology world.
Almost leaders taking us into uncertainty

Ability to sync, reach out, find your own
Lashing out in confused direction
Problems of old manifest in new medium

False deity, religious cries, throwback
Holy war played out in statistics and debate
New god’s decree lost to deaf ears

Money and power the old driving force
our sick puppeteer defining societal norm
once good people swayed by its charm

growing and learning, life’s lessons on television
binding morals or past ethics lost in youth
chivalry an outcast, replaced by ignorant evil

child protege, look beyond the force feed
challenge the world or be ripped off
regardless, you will inherit this plague

today a victim, tomorrow responsible
your future a curse
