The great manipulation.

The church baptizes.
The school teaches.
The media scares.
Politicians offer balm.

Ignorance my enemy.
It shadows the truth.
Seen in fragmented flashes.
Squint to bring it focus.

Closed eyes and ears to dark
Stare faithfully into the sun.
Truth will burn your sockets.
I’m not the only one to see.

Advertising’s secret to joy.
Wont be happy without that toy.
Forever wanting one more thing.
Consume consume consume.

Can you see it in my face?
Every wrinkle in it’s place
Taste my life through angst
I try to fight and I forgive.
