Fantasy, Politics and Nonsense

Ah, here it is, the rabbit hole
I've been down it before, you know.
Hares in hats and Cheshire cats,
republicans and democrats.

Elfs or elves, what does it matter,
they’re all as nutty as the Hatter.
Partiers drinking tea by the sips,
avoiding benevolent dictatorships.

“Off with their heads!” should be the yell,
sending them off to their private hell.
No more lying, they’re all alone, it’s
Alfred Hitchcock and Twilight Zone.

How to escape the nightmare we’re in,
like a story by the brothers Grimm.
Leaving breadcrumbs to find our way,
to return to normal, come what may.

Which bottle to drink, which mushroom to bite,
centaurs and fairies dance with delight.
It’s not the first time and won’t be the last,
the secret is to remember the past.

Don’t forget the rabbit hole,
we've all been down it before, you know.

Slave Trade

Once again, the slave ship sails
Heavy with those in bondage wait
Chains no longer your ankles bind
Instead, these chains bind up your mind

Slavers no longer need travel afar
Unwitting souls now reside on their shore
Whips are not needed to keep them in line
It can be done with the cost of a dime

Breaking up families just as before
All for a little bit, a little bit more
Souls are sold for a little white powder
Or Ecstasy for your sons and your daughters

No longer working your pride is gone
Collecting checks you didn't earn
Government slavers pushing their crack
The slave mentality perpetuates lack

Escape is not easy you slave of today
No underground railroad to take you away
Man does not bind you this time around
Your inner weakness runs you aground

A new civil war must be fought and won
A war fought of wills and not of guns
Sink the slave ship once and for all
Never again to answer it’s call
