The Greatest Delusion of All

By Tony DeLorger © 2014


Delusion is the fast food of the century,

voracious appetites never satisfied,

while we walk the hallowed halls

of our regurgitated beliefs,

in complete ignorance of our origin,

our circumstance and tenuous future.


They walk among us by the thousands,

integrated, watching ever nuance of our lives,

while soulless clones harvest alien needs,

and lost souls are taken, manipulated,

experiments of inter-racial procreation,

inter-species hybrids,

the very core of life taken from God's hands,

into the test tubes of technology.


Then who protects us from reality,

our governments, our religious leaders?

They are the ones who sold our cheapened lives,

to further their knowledge, technology

and to secure more power for themselves,

among those who were once Gods,

in the eyes of ignorance.


What lives among us, above us, below us,

tweaking life with abandon,

weather, natural disasters, culling populations,

shutting down opposition, disturbance,

and we walk the streets worried about mortgages,

paying a bill too late, a parking fine.


Perhaps ignorance is bliss,

but I still believe there is a God,

a creator of the infinite, the possibilities,

but it is we who ride this beast called life,

with all else that lives in the infinite,

and we are infants, novices, mere babes in a mine field,

easy prey for beings so far advanced.


'Dulce' is the tip of an iceberg so vast,

we cannot even fantasise,

incapable of grasping the enormity of our delusion,

and in the end it is we alone,

in the will of ego and power that has kept silent the wolves at the door.


So, let them do what they may,

destroy us, turn us into slaves, keep us in the dark,

for all I know is I have tried to be a positive being,

hurt no-one, practised kindness and compassion,

and if it be my time for death or worse, then so be it,

I sleep with a quiet heart.


The truth is out there. Be very sure you want to know it before you look, because it may not be what you expect.
