We have the wolf by the ear and we mean to keep it.
It is not our error, it’s theirs–we see clearly in our broken mirror.
They who so callously rejoice to higher concepts than they think we possess
We who hold all the answers with our rod and staff, we ignite the stars and drown them!
We are like two weights in the sea circling each other
The more we battle, the further we spiral down,
to depths even scholars cannot fathom.
The seagulls cry out above us
the waves bring up our blood
but we will never turn back, we will never surrender.
We will keep this wolf, this slavery
You will bow down and remain in line.
If hatred we be–hatred we are
Power, control, money, prestige–
you know nothing if we control your being.
You will honor and worship us.
We will strike out at the lone voice who calls out in the night.
A quick, free write from the perspective of evil. Religious symbolism, hypocrisy, and allusions to history tied together with modern day events and evils.
