Darkness Reigns

 
Guillotine
Macabre eating machine
chomping off another pissant peasant head
Irrelevant bloodlines spilled
Baskets overflow with the killed
filled with dripping poetic verse;
recitals of the disembodied dead
 
Non-compliance;
defiance of decrees by the Throne
swallowed whole by shadow dying alone
Waterboarded with one's own hot breath
while listening to the ass-inine excuses
for your being put to death
 
And the reign of darkness continues
black hoods custom fit
drawn over eyes vacant of hope
The only saving grace?
A merciful exit
swifter than neck broken at the end of a rope

Cutting out your voice -
the instrument of choice!
 
Guillotine
Industrial package sorting machine
Baskets loaded into horse drawn cart  
pulled through townsquare where
opinionated heads are tossed
through the air without a care;
being vocal comes at the highest cost  

So choose your words wisely
Speak not ill of any Royal;
your incentive to stay loyal
Do as they say
Do as you are told
Increase your chances of growing old
 
Guaranteed removal of obstinate brains
Lyrics freed from severed arteries and veins
Freedom is knowing the limitations of chains  
Neverending is our darkness that reigns
 
Darkness reigns
