Joseph Crain:

               The Narrative

I am lost tonight in this chaotic fog

As fear consumes the masses’ eyes

And breaks their flaccid cognizance

They confuse theatrics with truth

And openly exchange wrong for right

I weep for them, they don’t even fight

The proverbial cattle graze on lying cud

Blindly accepting the foulest rancor

While innocence is deprived from youth

I cry out in this echoing tunnel

Truth pierces their ears in searing pain

Hearing but refusing to listen

An anemic narrative they clench tightly

Holding on to the ornate fabrication

The sheep prance to slaughter

I pray one day soon the Light they’d see

Before all is gone and life is rewritten
