So They’d Like Us To Believe


Black is white, down is up

so they’d like us to believe

in the name of God, war is peace

we’re headed toward the light


Pain is premium, felt and inflicted

and vengeance is justified

so close your hearts and minds

to the screams you hear at night


Lies are true , love is weak

wickedness will tame the lions

invisible are the crying

wise the short-sighted


We’re deaf to their lies

so they’d like us to believe

hiding in their darkness

will clear our searching minds

This poem is the mirror of the GREEK-ROMAN EMPIRE showing that INQUISITION RULES in full FORCE; that the majority, - the great majority - is in cultural TRANCE under hypnotic command of the Lords of War - engineers of disgrace, discord and slavery.

"So They'd Like Us To Believe" is a poem that shows the reality of our slavering ERA for consenting the lures of the servant of ZEUS...(*)(Please read: THE FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL, CANTERBERY AND VATICAN.)

This poem is a sharp sWORD of the VERB in the Poetry´s Revelation century. "So They'd Like Us To Believe" is a masterpiece.

I Salute You, Sublime Poet!
