BLINDED BY AUTHORITY

Shhhhh!

Whisper your truth.

Walk softly by the tyrant

Tread lightly near the rulers of gold

Otherwise permanent silence!

Swallow your pride

Tuck in your wings

Yes sir no sir intone

Shhhhh!

Lest they hear you

Oh the fear

They have of truth

Cover your eyes

Disappear

Lay it out for few

Shhhhh!

Spoilers walk behind

Stabbing at inconsistencies

Stretching out fallacies

Foaming at the mouth

Shhhhh!

Cry quietly your wisdom

Lest they come for you

Cover your ears

Cover your eyes

Cover your mouth

Forget you know.
