Zombie



right before our eyes
for all to see
if we seek
truth
foretold throughout millennia
gods crashing the gates
regurgitates dementia
sickness
in the hearts
and minds of men
blinded by
selfishness
fueled by gluttony
the blind leads the blind
on track to
recklessness
guided by
scent of sin
son of man repents
aimlessly
discombobulates
the populace
stagnant growth
encapsulates
tears fulminates
promotes acedia
souls degenerate
hate emasculate
bodies gyrate
penetrates blindly
sentient beings
acting like
damn zombies!

I might not be the smartest apple to fall from the tree but believe me the resonance of my impact resoundingly reverberates the tree, stirring emotions and messaging egos in quiet retribution. Welcome to my humble sanctum more…
