Poetry Day: Conspiracy Professional

Let’s be honest. You know who this is and where he’s from.

(I wrote this after getting into a week long discussion with a conspiracy theorist who was all over the place.  By day 4, I was just along for the ride and trying to think of a way to disappear.  I like coming up with mysteries and small conspiracies, but I don’t go that deep.  Mostly because I think those who get into seats of power are too arrogant and situationally stupid to keep everything a secret.)

I hear you talking

Screaming

At an alarming rate

About the truth we miss

That you must show us

And lead us into light

*

Your fervor is amazing

Like the greatest fire

Barely kept controlled

As if keeping these secrets

Would be your death

As you gloriously explode

*

Still I find it tiring

And every slightly wasteful

To sift through all your posts

They are complex

Mazes of facts and falsehoods

That lose me as I read

*

Maybe I prefer

To be among the sheep

Blissful in my simple way

Just trying to survive

Ignorant of power schemes

Designed to hold the darkness

*

There is a reason I hold back

From following your call

I have a nagging question

It has settled in my brain

Drowning any urge I had

To believe all that you say

*

What is your plan

After the curtain falls

And the villains are usurped

The public’s eyes are cleared

Seeing lies within the sun

And shattered trust along the ground

*

There is the other truth

You might not want to say

It has held from ancient times

Topple a ruling liar

And another liar rises

To start the game again

*

I still commend your fervor

To breach the illuminati wall

Yet I will not follow

Without a plan

Based not on blinding hope

To keep us from the hands of anarchy

    This was brilliant! This verse really hit hard:

    What is your plan

    After the curtain falls

    And the villains are usurped

    The public’s eyes are cleared

    Seeing lies within the sun

    And shattered trust along the ground
