Words of distrust
falling off every tongue
tensions rising to a boil

hostile glances
cast over every shoulder
in expectation of betrayal

knives are sharpened
in every darkened corner
withering façades, shaken

rising tides
of madness overwhelm us
paranoia penetrates

long-suppressed savagery
intruding furtively
penetrating empty spaces
corridors of the human psyche

castes wrought in stone stifle their dreams,
carve out their tongues unworthy flock, ascension denied
crippled and mute, they stagger
with knives drawn in search of a mark

obdurate boundaries of complacent servility
established from their birth
too late came the epiphany for
the meek never to inherit the earth

destitute and mocked by platitudes
fear and frustration overtakes
grasping at straws in want of salvation
abject grief sublimated through rage

Conflict spreads exponentially
long-dormant leviathans stir
in every man, roused by the scent of this..

crisis begets panic begets violence begets death begets
crisis begets panic begets violence begets death begets
crisis begets panic begets violence begets death begets
crisis begets panic begets violence begets death...
