Contrition

If we have no standard to live by

We become lost in our moral decay

Using slogans to stay hidden from others

Our sophistry now on display

The rules of our engagement

Will change from day to day

A special hell for those who are aware

An equal condemnation for the ignorant who betray

The temptation of misused ego

The lack of any self resolve

Will impune others to accountability

As our own souls indeed will devolve

DCG

It’s easier to blame society

It’s easier to blame society

Than to improve our own moral character

Some say that’s why we have laws

Some say that’s why we have a savior

The social justice warriors

Will often loudly protest

They see only the problems outside of them

What problems in their character will they profess?

The character of a social network

Begins with the character of the individual

Only for the pragmatic

This is a first principle

How you look upon the world

Gives you a prism for what you see

Only you must decide how to act

Only you must decide how to be

DCG

But rather what lies in between

Alone

Aghast

Caught in the chaos

It happened so fast

There are forces of evil

There are forces of good

A road paved with good intentions

How shall we determine what we should?

The world is watching

The politicians doublespeak

The religious pray for answers

The zealots prey on the meek

Men are corrupted and are falible

So little do we learn

The history of our fathers

Lay in embers of what we earn

The many ways forward

That we tread goes unforeseen

Not in the realms of Heaven or Hell

But rather what lies in between

DCG

If you tell me your opinion

If you tell me your opinion

The first thing I will do

Is consider your past behavior

To interpret this spoken view

There are countless ideas

Put into practice there are only a few

Do you live up to what you purport?

The logic of the evidence is only up to you

Before you rain comment

Deliberating what you think is due

Start first by looking within

Are you consistent in what you think as true?

The mind can distort our experience

On what we may purview

If you argue in moral dialogue

Are you impervious to critical review?

A superior intelect

Will always question what they construe

To live by what they say

Remains to be tested on what will ensue

DCG

Why do you dismiss what you don’t understand?

The way you approach the world

It’s clear you have no respect

What you fail to investigate

Promulgates the ignorance on why you reject

A view through the lens of Marxist ideology

A world of chaos is what you see

In the arrogance of political dogma

You egregiously make your pleas

What is most disconcerting

You imitate what you hate

Though you do not recognize this

The irony of your fate

So much easier to lecture others

Adopting the indoctrination you accept as true

So little did you think about the implications

The reality that you live in and view

“If I were a tiger

I’d bite peoples’ heads off”

You told me this as a child

But now you just scoff

So easy to jump to conclusions

Faulty logic is close at hand

For someone who holds themself in high regard

I hold this behavior in remand

Why do you dismiss

What you don’t understand?

Chalk it up to your influences

Utopian as wonderland

DCG

Because you have watched and done nothing

There is a pandemic

One of ignorance and one of cowardice

How many times will it take?

Before the mob pushes you to the precipice?

The fight for freedom in your name’s sake?

You cannot lead successfully

That of which you hate

They resort by controlling the narrative

For those they would subjugate

If you indulge in threats of violence

You incite hatred and you incite fear

Only consumed by the impoverished minds

A failed academic and failed moral education that is clear

So if you stand by and watch

Say nothing to reject the fiction

A different reality is created

Around a falsely presented affliction

What is left after the submission?

A misplaced trust has taken place

Because you have watched and done nothing

You’ll likely receive a boot in the face

DCG

Father Time is undefeated

Stuck in the past?

Lived a life already gone yet?

Again to relive?

What had taken so long to forget?

Can’t help it

Caught in this mess

Turning away only helps for a bit

But sooner or later

Gotta make good on your wit

Unprocessed trauma

Runs silent runs deep

Not much to discover

When it’s held in its keep

Father Time is undefeated

DCG

Woke Supremacy

Woke superiority

Western culture in decay

If you hate your country so much

Than why indeed do you stay?

You give up on any argument

You cannot support your views

You attack, censor, and intimidate

Subvert and control the biased news

The cult conspires around the cauldron

Shouting confections of misery and hate

Swearing allegiance to a philosophy

That cannot win any logical debate

The woke supremacy you tout

Avoids the predicates you create

In the court of public opinion

You capitalize on feelings, manipulate and conflate

You might ensnare the weak-minded

Rest assured of what you berate

The irony of the absurdity you follow

Is seeded in your fate

DCG

With a lack of courage we acquiesce

The culture war has taken casualties

The polarization begets the tribal identity

When adults emerge as adolescents

They adopt the bully proclivity

Educated people

No longer freely think

Standing on the partisan line

Espousing talking points written in the party ink

Much like a cult

This tribe shuts down the mind

That questions any divergent motives

Of any differing kind

Analogous to an invasion

The body snatchers improvise

With mob rule pravado

Those against them they disenfranchise

The child on the playground is bullied

The adult in the world also confess

Not much changes

With a lack of courage we acquiesce

Only logic, reason and ethics

Can combat the folly at play

Debate must be encouraged

If we intend to square this away

DCG

Are we not compromised?

Can our reasoning be corrupt?

Can we hold politicians accountable?

Only if we can interrupt?

An entitlement class

The collective Socialist dream

Producers in a society produce

While those who only take is a right that they deem

The inflated ego

Exempt themselves from the law

Self interest the temptation

They manifest their own moral downfall

The accolades of celebrity

The seduction of mass delusion

The “no fault of mine” bubble

Is the result of their conclusion
