Destiny Consumption

By Dilated View

Distracting classes
With theories of grasses greener
Where the purchased distraction
Conditions esteem

Observing clashes
With wisdom and fashion

While feeding the masses
The Manifest dream

Pride meet
Ailing sky
Tame tendency;
Rise to devise by
Improving design while
Our prismatic entropy
Thrives in disguise

Gauging distinction
By leaping lasting lethal gaps
Where those blinded by freedom
Eat revellers of reason

Destiny dealers
Invented the season

Of consume our vision
Or hang you for treason

    Beautiful structure to this poem! It's so true they want to produce robots to go in the herd. Individuality and imagination are shunned.

    Beautifully poetic and well said, though the truth it highlights is horribly ugly and pathetic. We all need to do our part to bring honor back to the stars and stripes ;) - XXOO Scholar

    There are many things about this that I like. I don't want to particularly rip each gem down to here, so I will start with the first stanza: what I enjoy about great writers is the ability to take common saying and re-paint them with their own words. It's a resurrection. I will never thing of "grass is greener" without thinking of that stance. I think that is the mark of a great writer.
