Dystopian Masses

Looking at the headlines on my homepage, it sure seems the world is increasingly a dark place with too much wrongfulness going on.  In part, this was written in reply to what seems to happening.

Dystopian Masses
by Michael Romani

The power of evil holds its interrogation
Quashing the moments of hopeful contemplation
Like a sucker punch to sunshine's rebellion
As audacity rises up another defiant billion

Here in this world of hyper-capitalism
There's irony in the post modern fatalism
That finds the presence of increasing darkness
With only a handful of dreams against its harshness

The anxiety of each day bleeds into tomorrow
Until most feel swept up by a tide of sorrow
Doomsaying our way into a biting satire
It's hard to believe humanity is not down to its wire

Like a gateway drug inflicted at the feet of power
We grasp at crumbs and ty not to be so dour
It's a zeitgeist happening of revolution embraced
And sadly one false move can destroy the human race
