Detoxifying Toxic Delusions

The most terrifying event to face,
Is a putting in place...
A painless way,
To introduce...
Detoxifying toxic delusions.
And kept beliefs to have been fictioned,
Cemented meant...
In minds to permanently stay.

Truth long abandoned.
With an intention to keep reality hidden.
These days have begun to surface.
Threatening with a purpose to reveal,
A history told...
To delude and conceal,
That which had been re-written.
For the purpose to exclude,
Truth to reproduce other versions of it.

Now facing threats and truth to fear,
Are the ones who protest...
Their way of life,
Will become affected and this upsets.
Since gone to leave,
Is that feeling felt of bring superior
Over others to despise.
Based upon lies.
They were taught to teach and digest.

Their dependency on diversity.
To claim the feeding of it never needed.
Will be difficult to continue to deceive,
When today's children...
Eventually find to discover,
Their democratic way of life to life...
Had been championed to keep it great.
By the very ones attempting to replace,
Those of diverse and ethnic races.
Who without their participation,
A greatness to achieve and brag about...
Would not be,
These United States of America.
For many to live it witnessed to happen!
