Blind loyalty

The worst kind of loyalty, is often meted out blindly It’s an entrapment, and it always ends badly I once thought to try it on for size But I couldn’t afford its high price I found it made a rather merciless and relentlessly evil master Pushes its ardent fans, with all the strength it can muster Under its spell they are suddenly rendered senseless It appears they deem common sense as rather useless Happy to replace it with a pair of blinkers in the end Soon tunnel vision sets in, to mess with the head Goes ahead and trades in all logic for herd mentality That stubbornly refuses to face reality Pretends to honour patriotic duty with such fake regality Yet another crafty way to justify injustice And satisfy the lust for collective prejudice In the end it's bound to kill a nation's rich heritage as moral decay spreads down each lineage A fruitful legacy lost just to appease entitlement And blissful ignorance relished as divertissement Such a waste and a steep decline to self sabotage It's a tragedy within a mixed media collage A strange reality where biased perceptions are well renowned In a world where critical thinking has long since been renounced
