An Age In Retrospect (Take 3)
“A king loved by his subjects had a dream…to found a new Camelot…
it was only a dream.”
A man ready to reveal that hidden from the world
a beacon against the darkness
on show to his happy people, banners unfurled.
“Oh the folly of dangerous days.”
The empire of shadows were displeased
and struck down the ‘truth-giver’ with treacherous ease…
Deceptive wars were being fought on false fronts,
the enemy was not the enemy.
He was like the rest, just prey in a global hunt.
The World turned with LSD and Mescaline mind
founding a new revolution of the Aquarian kind,
warriors with gestalt awareness…protested,
as minstrels sang a song of freedom,
an illusion as best can be attested.
The cauldron of culture grew and grew,
into the pot went the industries of the popular,
economic growth, and a war or two.
All the essential ingredients in a recipe of
distractions, needed for a human stew.
Designed to keep enquiring minds
from knowing what we knew
that was reserved for the chosen few.
“And so like the Salmon eating its way up rapids
hungry to die, we rushed toward technocratic utopia.
Lost in our hubris, unaware of the paradigm shift
like the Atlanteans past… and like them, for us,
it was too late, the die had been cast.”
A New Millennium dawn…
The Sun rose with new hope above the horizon of need
but it was just another illusion from a century of greed.
And when giants fell amidst the crystal canyons
of the American dream…well?
The World present day...
Watching our imagined reality on digitised TV,
And there, in our blindness we see,
‘Another murder, another bombing.’
The new religion the politics of the gun,
chaos and disorder parameters set
by the ‘New World Order.’
Conjecture and confusion adds to the mix
enhances the illusion, adds to the fun.
A communication revolution
or a devolving of human evolution
under panoptic control?
The agencies of light and dark
now fight for your very soul.
…Welcome to the beginning of the End of Times.
“…And cut! That’s a wrap!”
