Inside This Draconian Cage

Am I fated to dwell in this cruel and heartless place where hands writhe like snakes, concealing a face? Is there salvation to be found from those horrid things that dangle grotesque heads from spider web strings? I've searched the most remote corners of my mind for an answer to this atrocity, but not one could I find I long for a human sanctuary where I can be set free from the groping of cold fingers reaching out for me. Mankind has become callous, an abstract machine, plodding about to the beat of the same tambourine. It's a robotic society, blind to the needs of others with an indifference that stifles until it smothers When did this world become one of selfish greed where everyone takes so much more than they need Clawing hands that troll from only God knows where in a pestulant society. It's become more than I can bear In this bizarre perdition, humans can no longer engage I must guard my emotions from inside a Draconian cage I seek death as means to escape this brutal barbaric place and donning a shroud, I withdraw from this robotic race

Sooner or later the greed of humans will catch up with us and it will be the downfall of our civilization. A chilling write, Lin, but so true.

So sad but true, humans have lost the plot, to late, they will find the demons they have begotten. Mick
