Oppression

Winding up a clock of insanity
jealous men of state, 
a beguiling intrusion of vulgarity
witness their own self sealing fate.
Splendor drives a faulted agenda
decades can be encased in spite,
for fear of the next great contender
Society Generale, lost in its self loathing flight.
Unconsciously minded of hate and rape
intelligence truly lost on the masses.
Parity is left to desolate
by a so called regal classes.
Truth determines the rise and falls.
Flashes of indulgences exist,
from behind the cursed blinding walls
a mindset continues to resist.
