Season of the Reckoning
Everything’s off rhyme
stuck in syncopated time
this season of the reckoning
is echoing the sickening,
sanity’s trembling is worsening
adrenalin is assembling
both sides told they’re trespassing
but disenchanting is awakening.
Threatening editing slides by
some who are unquestioning,
but to me it is unsettling.
Deadening, deafening lies are enveloping
our lives, but we just keep on messaging
while what they’re peddling feels like sentencing.
We’ve gotten used to crazy menacing
but like a loaf of bread with leavening
we’ll rise up to not feel second string.
His skeleton of embezzling
hypnotizing but we’re awakening
adding strength to what’s developing
together we’ll soon be reveling.
