Political intoxication

Facts now have alternatives to fortify an elite’s status Truth has lost its authority Principles abandoned as minds become amorous to like-minds Intellectual treachery Corporations have frozen the status quo Arrested ideology Anti-capitalism is pretentious and treasonous Distrust the politics, kill the new entry Religion is a sanctuary of poverty walled by tyrants Machiavellian weaponry A cloaked politician claims anointment from God Blind flock in an amen chantry Jesus misunderstood for good for life is good Yield to Caesar with slavery Every system wants a piece of your livelihood Patriotic puppetry They invade privacy with dosages of conformism Online artillery I am an armoured guerilla in a humanism suicide vest Blowing up the system
