bright red cape



you dare to chain me?!!!!!!
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
it's beast you want, it's beast you're up against!
there's no denial vs. facts and obvious intentions!
great harm will come to all of you!!!!!!
how dare you?!!!!!!!!!
---------------------------------------
they used the heavy chain and fire,
cold water, methods of disgrace,
sharp objects, electricity and poison's taste
free spirit's torture was only the beginning...
----------------------------------------
give up you fool!!! the pain is on the rise!
the tide is coming and the hour - late!
do you believe we have a limit?
do you believe there's something in it?
give up you fool! give up!!!!!!!
-----------------------------------------
and so went mutilation of the freedom
pursuit of open mind and closure of the speech
no soul survived such blood loss
but through the night, screaming didn't fade
continued loud and brute in this withstanding
..........................................
you want my soul?!!! here!!!!!! take it!!!
and bend it's will if such is your desire!!!
YOU CAN'T!!!! this puppet has no wires!!!
I am my own to keep and manage!!!!
I am myself, a human being!!!
Take all, if so much in it!!!
fools! do you believe I have a limit?!!!!!
...........................................
they elevated pressure, to heights
that shook foundations of their own
that made them doubt their capability to win
that set them one against the other
that split them into rights and wrongs
their fear gave birth to fear
...........................................
the beast remained unbroken
it's fury - bright, it's sparks - undoused
it's smile - proud and vitriolic
with mutiny and conflict it aroused
...........................................
you fools...hahahahaha....you God damn fools....
I'll tell you what you want....
I'll tell you what you want to hear....
your bait looks tasty after all...
It's not like there are options for parole
I'll tell you what you want!
...........................................
the beast have lied, but they believed
relieved that happy end was coming
protected by the bright red cape!
that MUST appear and save them
that MUST appear before the very end
and so they lowered their awareness
not used to brutal tactics of the age
when doubt will never win against the fate
when choice of death is always better
than keeping beasts within the cage
..........................................
great harm did come to all of them
