Conspiracy, Alive and Well

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


I can but question what deeds are rife,

in a world fulfilled by voracious men,

whose ideals stripped bare by wanton gain,

are blind to the broader scope of reality.


Too long have men explored their will,

to at any cost exalt themselves,

disregard balance and seize power and wealth,

to somehow settle for the illusion of superiority.


Why then are we governed by these men,

whose commitment lives only within their position,

are we not pawns to the conspiracy of ultimate power and control,

impassive blindness, the accepted state of security.


While beyond our knowledge thrives circumstance,

and we the masses can only imagine,

what reality exists regardless of us,

the truths of our origins, our existence and our future.


How paltry our wild imaginings, our links to past,

our legends of Gods, religions and philosophies,

all like pieces of a puzzle, scrambled in a haze of misinformation,

fed to us as the powers take hold, and we the sheep follow in belief.


Truth stands aghast, in shock of our ambivalence,

choosing ignorance rather than having to deal with reality, change,

and in that we fall in complicity, knowing the core of our fears,

and the end that will in time ensue.


One earth, one rule, one belief, one compliance, one planned life,

and no voice, no resistance, no escape, no real freedom.


The pieces of the puzzle edge closer together:

conglomerates of wealth, energy, food, water, media and power,

all moving toward that conclusion...

and most people are completely unaware, just as was meant.

This reality has long been in place. Can we choose our future?

      Powerful, makes you think. Are we all just sheep. Do we have choices or are they made for us.

      Great poem. Conspiracy certainly does live all around us. Those who are afraid of the truth deny it vehemently.

      Not to be picky, but in your 3rd stanza did you intend to use the word porn, or pawn? They both could fit, i suppose.
