The poem(s) are below...



If in these times we wane or waver
If those who question fall from favor
The consequence could not be graver
obscured is the terrible toll

Manipulation is slow and unseen
Lives controlled by a corrupt machine
when no one remains who dare intervene
Each person just playing their role

Tyranny's voice deflects and maligns 
Propaganda alters the minds
The terms of freedom redefined
Automatons robbed of their souls
