Hate Unchecked, Insanity Unleashed

World history is replete,
With bloody revolutions.
And often those who led,
Were left a bloody mess.

While lunacy and hate,
Metastasize like cancer,
Malignant waves will not abate,
Once intermixed together.

Insipid drones in incensed swarms,
Will chant their asinine mantras,
Limp leaders pander, acquiesce,
To demands contrived to matter.

With libraries sacked and statues lost,
Historic record stricken.
Just ignoramuses now host,
The rest disgusted, sickened.

Alas insanity unleashed,
Destroys, and spreads its malice,
Its indiscriminate bloodlust,
Consumes even its own.

Those seek to ride this surge,
And tap into its power,
Are often swept away,
With those they would destroy
