I’ve climbed to the top of the mountain,
and heard the eagle’s cry.
I’ve prayed to gods both dark and light,
for answers and reasons why.
I’ve seen the world turn more harsh,
and the people have lost their senses.
I’ve watched the once open spaces,
be boarded off with fences.
Events foreshadow times ahead,
of a great and dark foreboding.
Society is a time bomb,
That is already exploding.
Each act is shrapnel,
sticking in our minds.
Social media is memory,
Recorder of these times.
No eagle’s cry or mountain high,
Hold the answers to my prayers.
No gods above or far below,
No angel or demon cares.
The noise is getting louder,
It invades our very thought.
It blanks our minds completely,
We can’t remember what we forgot.
We have replaced humanity,
With increasing level of insanity.
If we would look and plainly see,
It’s not too late to break free.
