Humanity has deserted this land 
It does seem 
The sacrifice of the self for the whole
A now defunct creed

Injustice and avarice abound 
The mentality and ethics of man
Has been corrupted by hypocrisy
Celebrity is our greatest aim
The token of modern intellectual backwardness 

The great are cocooned
By their own sense of superiority
With license to imprison the minds 
And will of lesser men 
The trodden are left but with thoughts of revolution
The hearts of men is 
But a cache of amoral
And selfish aims
Self-preservation being 
The individual's badge of honour
His pinnacle of achievement

Immediate and individual gains
Ill gotten 
Have numbed man's feelings 
Reducing each person’s worth

The brotherhood of society
A pawn used only for advancement 
Is banded about by snake oil men 
Insincerity usurps
Moral grounding and social consciousness

An earthly heaven 
Peopled by god-men 
With no ethereal grounding 
Emboldens man

Faith in the religion of earthly infinity
Blinkers objectivity
The race to conquer all
Man’s new philosophy

The new measure of posterity 
And all knowing god 
Naught but a banner showcasing 
Headline news  

A heady enthusiasm for fame 
Creates comical spectacles
Thus eroding man’s credibility
His reality littered 
With the effervescent praise 

Compromised ideals entangled
With pseudo enlightenment
Displays man's fickleness
And his descent into a world 
Of excitable flummery 

Insincerity is the latest racket
That meets the ignorant's 
Need for trickled suplerfious
Dogma from rascals  
Who direct policy
Through the all-powerful lobby

Constantly bombarded by 
Over blown and hysterical tripe 
The minions who consciously wish to be led 
Develop a sense of injustice and discalm
As hollow as their intellect

Faith in and praise for the 
New era of socialism 
Which gives political antics 
A new coat 
Shows little stamina
For deeper thought
The new soul of man 
Is the balance of his account
The route to his advancement 
Through a social pyramid 
Where selfishness is king

His poisoned often 
Irrational intellect is
Coupled with gross misdeeds
Leaving him to harbours ill will
Against proponents of 
Social equality and change 

Life is but a grim reality 
Of wants and needs
The daily life 
A most dismal theatre 

To forget your sense of society
To have no social conscience 
Is to live a life most sterile and dull
Live together
Be as one 
And prosper as a whole
