Greed Kept Fed To Feed

Greed kept fed to feed,
With a slowness that kills,
A fading to diminish consciousness.
Diseased against receiving truth.
And anything connected that values reality.
Once trusted as a must,
In a head too thick and sickened...
To a using of a common sense.
No longer to defend.
Now finding that offensive to even pretend,
The having of it.

Lost and incapable to revive they are.
As if hypnotized and made to follow.
Those they have allowed to obey,
Without thought just to please...
An appeasing to be controlled,
Over their every move made.
With no memory left to remember,
What that feeling had been...
To be among other human beings.

Kept fed to feed upon it.
Although welcomed as a friend.
A threatening enemy.
Craving more of it to feast.
Caring less themselves they defeat.
In a self destruction that permanently kills...
All delusions they have been made to fiction,
An alternate reality and the truth of it...
Never to have existed.

In their unconscious minds hypnotized,
On greed to feed and kept to keep fed.
In their vacant heads.
They have been made to believe,
What is not there is theirs to destroy!
Greed kept fed to feed,
Is a friend and not their worst enemy!

'What is the problem here?'

It seems,
Many are incapable to be hypnotized.
As if they are immuned.'

'Fire the advertisers.
And hire the others,
You know...
The ones we thought,
Too aggressive in their marketing?
Perhaps they can convince them,
More dosages of hypnosis...
Will soothe their anxieties.
And remove to eliminate,
Any fears they may have...
Of losing that nonsense of using,
A common sense.
It has worked before.
How difficult can an easy task be?
Feed them their meat as they like it.
Prepare them for the hypnotism!'

'That's the problem.
For whatever the reason,
Many are claiming to be vegetarians!'
