Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

The Comfort of Conformity

As the web of lies draws ever tighter, beware the goals of predators,
Today 'they' the evil parasites terminated, tomorrow the goals shift
And 'we' so very suddenly and easily become, the heedless martyrs.

Enslaved minds, surrender blithely free will and free thought,
Where today, wealth soothes and the worker bees work tirelessly,
The comfort of belonging and having- justified as it is hard earned.

In comfortable numbness, common humanity submits too easily,
Surrendering the reins of power to greedy, untrustworthy leaders;
In time the aggressors become the victims of two-faced ideology.

Thinkers for our own benefits, beware the comfort of conformity-
Betrayal is in a days work for those who play efficiently with lives,
Ideologues awaken, beware the backdrop of a money driven reality.
