Ode to a key that might
unlock any gate.
When what is inside could
never withstand the desire,
I've never been one to stand
around and wait.
You can never return to where
you once stood.
Outside.....with a key.
The moon rises, the sun sets
Images change and memories remain
In between some coffee and a few cigarettes
It does nothing for no one to regret
Not worth any one memories to forget
A story as old as time
Or at least the first "UHH!"
The lesson never learned
The inherited distraction
A page never turned
The heart of man can be ignored
to the point of decay and
Only to appease a true
heart of darkness.
Mercilessly set adrift between
the Hunters of the Dark
and the gatherers or junk data.
Infrastructure can be neglected
for only so long
Until nostalgia begins to
wait you out.
Continually parroting a
"Death n' Taxes" quota.
I'm here to tell all of you,
One of the two is true...for sure
Who else out there has seen
enough friends go on to know
this getting older thing is getting old.
Among the United Ignatia,
the vultures and sparrows chirp the anecdotes.
And the alcohol bent and prescription bound
skip the punchlines on the world stage.
Don't worry about killing your idols,
They'll take care of that don't you worry.
And if enlightenment should shine
through the crack in your mind
They'll grant you the status elite
and introduce you to the blade
you will never see coming.
So if your going to peak
behind the curtain,
You better find a way to
express what you see.
Because the powers that be
set this in motion long before
any one of us were ever conceived.
The most efficient way to
eliminate the individual mind
is to take away the means
Slowly but surely chip away
at the freedom to do,
leaving only the means of escape,
in an existence of unlimited distraction.
An unwitting participant in the
Overdose Hate Campaign.
Left to question without answer
how a feeble attempt to control chaos
turned into a mass migration of cull.
How the perseverance of originality
mirrorly turned into nothing more than
another collection of
Ones and Zeros.
