I work to stop, bring the excluded
to light, include the more relevant
mop non-sense from the map
battle those with secret agendas
who pull curtains to confuse, bewilder
empty heads with extraneous information
demonize the good, hiding truth
behind drapes to obfuscate, to lull
pacify into submission, resignation
to a fate, pre-designed to capitulate
the vigilant, to vaporize their cause
multiplying the issues ad infinitum
to tire and muddle, until swept along
inept, a mob on a string, Lemmings
rushing to oblivious, finite endings.
