THE WAY TO NEVER LAND



Feels like living amongst caricatures from that distant planet Plutocracy
Marionettes drawn by song and dance tuned in to waltz Disney's fantasy
Never a murmur made whilst scared making a splash in wavering
Wilfully allowing others shortcomings be the horrid long on going
Earth is our all yet few have taken control and their sketchy plan be...
Supplant nature so a surface plan nets profit the narcissistic agree
Implementation of dysfunctional Mickey Mouse concepts
Don't all duck confrontation with these mini intellects
In weak minds the gap to freefall deep into holey order
The unholy sigh and tsk seeking solutions much broader
Wholly creating a new world that is totally computerised
Never cognisant the users that they are being robotomised
Stored memories ordering life now utterly smart's the phone
At its beck and calls being the mobile transient lifelike clone
Verge all reality for a fairy tale existence at arms length held in hand
No feat to stand on, fall flat on ones face surely the way to never land
