Elegant Deception




Let’s Celebrate the Death
of humanity and Scream:
Deception is life’s
New Marvel Movie!

There’s nothing more Elegant
than telling someone to go
to hell in Tortuous tact while
cracking up a witch’s Laughter!

Every christmas and election
media shows the world images
of the Virgin and Child wearing
an immaculate peaceful Smile.

While their divine faces
Radiate Merciful thoughts,
greed shows off bare Skin tones
as we walk towards ballot boxes.

We cast our votes in Incredulous
motions and Bleed our incomes
in the palms of the few elites
who Perspire lies on our Egregious
screens conspiring with Insanity as a means!

That’s politics, something
so wrong so Heathen
yet always wins the fight
because money is always right
and power has all the might!

Author’s Notes:
Inspired by: ” those who are slow to confess their errors are busy building lies to conceal them”  from The Heights by Louis Candlish.
