It Stays Longer

A traitorous season stays

Dysfunctional, but clearly, that’s the choice

Delusional rage over truth spelt out for the first time

It takes time to sink in through asphalt paths

Truth is more likely to be trampled

Faustian values survive without being fed

Being in hibernation in underground labyrinths

Spewing the poisons of fatal darkness

Truth is lame or being maimed

Stoking the spirit of hatred in minds

That space is controlled with firm hands

A psychological subjugation of misanthropes

Trying to be eloquent with faults

Simple cracks have become fault lines
