Tempest

Salutations  
from  
a  
world  
controlled  
by fear
Time to adjust  
the tempest  
before  
docility  
disappears
 
I misuse  
the  
guidelines  
for more  
experimental views
I’m the one  
who begs  
for  
freedom  
while the rest  
are  
being used
 
While they’re subservient,
malevolent,  
obsessed  
with  
faded time,
the
establishment  
Is committing  
the most  
reprehensible  
of crime
 
I stand my ground
for another round
of cabalistic threats
While the  
populous submits to this
The state has  
no regrets
 
The media  
feeds  
a  
frenzy
and people  
run for their lives
But when  
the masses  
lose  
everything  
The government thrives
 
While I want  
to  
push back
They make  
me retract
But how  
should  
we  
act
taking fiction  
as fact
 
Marionettes  
hope for the best
and cut  
the  
puppet strings
Hold to account  
what  
little  
amount
of acumen  
you still bring
