Infantile are minds that insulate their mortal presence
With irreparable disillusionment
So burdening that it overtakes any sense of true equality,
Beyond individualized notions
Of what should exist,
Never what might ensue
If humanity gave true determination
To equality boundless,
For irrelevant are all those that disagree,
Mavericks who maintain truths particular,
Where lofty appeasement is concocted
Through ignorance and blocking contemporary,
As if only universal opinions
Beyond human equality must succeed
Any notion of individuality,
For the architects of despotisms global in instability
Have fostered a unique supplicancy
With reproduced retinue,
An inner conscious
Derived from socialization
And obsessed with vain individualism,
Never collective understanding
Or honorable compromise,
Until indignation grows untenable
And digital censorship
Moves past deviant labels,
And nouveau genocide begins again
Like a rising western sun
Prophetic in leisurely destruction.
