The Nameless

 

Stalk the ashen streets of Hell that burn across the nation,
Let impassioned preachers speak of searing pain and bleak damnation,
It’s a cold hard road that leads to the heights, but better than this choking smog,
And a bold heart knows to bleed and fight, not whimper like a cowering dog,
So arm yourselves with knowledge for the flames lick at your very door,
Let each electoral college bravely stand, or set its name as, “Whore,”
No soul can now stand idly by and claim the role of meek spectator,
No poll can seek to pacify the bloodlust of this weak dictator,
When the armed anonymous grab people from the streets,
Supplanting those that wear their names and numbers as they, “Pound the beat,”
Then my friends you must ask yourselves why they’re there at all,
If not to sooth the dictator, fearful of his empires fall,
To send the, “Jack boot,” and, “The rifle,” out upon the peaceful streets,
Shows that he would rather watch it burn than ever cede defeat,
And those that raise their guns at Mothers surely have no shame,
I wonder if they’d do the same if we could see their face or name,
So stand together, Brothers, Sisters, call out this hypocrisy,
Or give up truth and justice and all hope of democracy.

Thanks Po, the world is becoming a dark place and all we have to do before we step into the abyss is nothing. Yep, doing nothing should ensure we fall into the endless, bottomless, pit.❤

A very truthful account of the stark reality that is becoming more and more prevalent right across the globe.

The prison planet doors are slamming shut and we are on the inside.

FEMA carriages lay in wait with shekels ready to accommodate
those who refuse to go quietly into that long dark night.

Ramping up, it's ramping up, to use the latest catch-all catchphrase.

Great write Jason.

Too right it is kev. It's becoming, "The land of the not so free." Scary stuff.

I've seen footage of the police in America wearing masks, and with their insignia and numbers removed from their uniforms.
When the forces which are supposed to protect you become anonymous and unaccountable it's the time to start worrying
