Polter-Zeitgeist



Polter-zeitgeist

Unheard of to say "Thou challenge the fray!"
'Stead mimics and gimmics on public display.
Dare not you parade the masses charade,
unless freed from conscience with consciousness brave.

Tis not what you seek,
just the world you've arrived.
Though one may have sought accrued lifetimes untried...
How can one defeat,
the loss of one's pride?
As if they could slay,
their own will to survive...
