Synthetic Lockdown

Conceptual fragility; the seducer of worth
Health be thy wisdom or salt of the earth
My essence, asunder; purveyor of faith
Evil seeps under exposing the wraith

Sanctity of division; a studious mile
Friends turned to enemies; rationale is on trial
Ignorance, a plenty. Devotion a must
It leads with red fury. They follow with lust

Upon its heels, they are amorous. They give all of their soul
But it mechanizes them. It gains full control
I ask them to research. I ask how it came
They look at me bleeding, yet feeling no shame

"It is provocative, consuming, life ending," they vow
"On your knees, handmaiden. We must show you how."
Encompassing depth, in breadth, they are one
They count all of the dying, the withered, the done

Rid us, the feigner; truth tellers thin guise
The serpents tongue is liquid and claims to be wise
Will the shareholders sapience of the mostly god-fearing
Master the art of obstacle clearing?

Instead they shamed the individual; chastised the breed
They forced their experiments in the name of spent greed
They forfended cultivation of absolute truth
Kept reality from fact; created lies in the sooth

Inherent madness is eternal; subvert and betray
Over our gravestones, they walk guilty, yet no one will pay
Too many warriors among us, they want but a few
But they cannot surmise just what one man can do
