in the shadows
Heard some freakers talking ‘bout the movement,
talking like it was a thing alive
saying, "What's the movement up to lately?"
doin' up the current movement jive,
hoping there's a camera in the shadows
recording all their antiquated prose,
not caring if it's truth they shovel daily
only if their public's rating grows.
Any blemish real or just imagined
is focus for their spotlight's daily rage,
truth is less important than the talk shows
and a two inch column on their morning page;
as they speak the smoke around them thickens,
as facts become mirrored shades of lies,
all they require is our worshipful acceptance,
they seem to think they are gods in disguise.
So, just keep those contributions flowing daily,
seems to be the only message they can drive,
the world may go to hell in their new basket
but the movement died when it became alive.
