Made From Scratch
An ever growing number of our adolescent children have been suckled by the biased breasts of prejudice and greed.
Born to couples steeped in hatred, bound to fashion soldiers built to fit in tightly with their anarchistic breed.
Unaware their destinies are virtually preordained...raised by those who thrive on scorning eons-old tradition...
All they know is what they’re taught by unforgiving cynics whose pathway to autocracy is managed through sedition.
Burning flags and storming buildings held by “those in charge” - with - “crushing all resistance” - as the only reason given -
The misinformed disciples wage their war while most, by far...unable to articulate by what it is they’re driven…
Blindly do the warlord’s will. And strongly preconditioned - by their anti-fascist overlings - to bring their foes to heel...
Just how far they’ll make it down their road of discontent depends on where they’re trying to get...and - who’s behind the wheel.
It’s these drivers who determine their eventual destination...and when indoctrination starts the day their lemmings hatch...
What they manufacture - through relentless prosecutions - are nothing short of brainwashed co-conspirators...made from scratch.
