OUT OF CONTROL
The fear inside is palpable,
Causing a mumbling and
Stumbling in a headlong
Effort to simplify heroically a
Life spinning out of control.
There are desperate words to
Scream for help, but no one hears.
There is only the wild, staccato of
Threats, bouncing off hastily
Erected walls used to fend off
All attempts at reason.
The message is loud and clear
“Enlightened arrogance is here.”
Where do you go now? Who cares?
The noise drones on, fear lives.
