The poem is below.


The Collective

slaughter of compassion
virtue out of fashion
soul selling for a trend
how far can morals bend?
an accepted disease
coughing up sleeze
poisonous expectations
more and more vile creations
the coffin crafted by insanity
another splinter of calamity
emotional corruption
condemning self expression
negligent empathy 
slaves to apathy
filthy rage grows
in an explosion of woes
a mass collaboration
birthing an abomination 
obliterating all value
striving to subdue
the beast of individuality 
mourn the remnants of lost sanity
