oh yeah! that's him all wrong alright!

they will only see

what he permits them to

but they will believe they are seeing the real thing


if only they could look

into the mirrors of themselves 

and see the damaging mockery he has inflicted


thankfully and I do mean thankfully ( BIG-TIME!)

it is they and not me who belong to him

and he, in turn, offers himself with one hand

while laughing behind the back of the other


for I have different eyes a clearer mind

not only able to penetrate his falsities

but also hold his untrue yesterdays

in pictures that would blind the vulnerable

with the glare of their own embarrassments 


how long the bleating followers

have waited for a shepherd no matter how devious

to lead them to his twisted version of togetherness

it is a strange form of worship

they have locked themselves into


until their susceptibility heals

on they will go kneeling at his dubious altar

unable to break the chains his sickness binds them with.

Sometimes you have to fool the fool who think they are fooling you and tricksters always come undone in the end, and truth eventually surfaces, people who mock or bully after a while are seen for what they are, and if someone is joining in with it then they are not worth knowing, karma pays them back in the end and the universe sends you back tenfold what energy you give out. ☺

Leon, I'm putting my money on the horse of manipulation That dark runner ridden by even darker riders

easy to avoid as long as we have 'different eyes' and 'clearer minds' than those who allow themselves to fall under their spells. P-O-W-E-R-F-U-L piece dude!

Hi Leon, I have been trying to decipher this over several readings, and have had to give up ! Perhaps you'll solve the mystery for us ; -it appears to pack a punch, but with no object for its aim.
Cheers Ray
