 ramblings and things


We are the creatures of your darkest night
sliding down your waves of pain and regret
an ample feed
for our needs
And we sow those seeds of terror that are
suddenly uppermost in your conscious mind
suddenly there
to incite despair
We grow fat on your sorrow thrive and expand
split and multiply night by night by night until
many more
than before
We gird your world with power to incite your pain
and horror make you lash out in violence and hate
and we thrill
when you kill
We herd your emotions along set tracks planned to
twist and turn your minds to accept the unacceptable
so you once more
make blood pour
And we revel in your massacres that pour out the hate
our alcohol equivalent to fuel the joys of full control
it's a mental rape
you cannot escape
We drive you on to the very edge and maybe beyond
so that self inflicted death is a release and we win one
more poor tormented soul
to swallow hot and whole
We are the Masters of your Universe and we control
and harvest your despair to the depths of your very soul;
no matter how you battle
you remain our cattle
