New Gods

Old Gods
step aside for the New
but the New Gods
do not speak the truth.

Taking words of innocence
they bite
  and chew
    and swallow
      and spew
  forth feigned intelligence
their best of friends:
our ignorance

power fuels control
control returns the favour
the one true mind-
and-soul-enslaver

their power stems from our belief
they write what we hear and see
a vicious blinding, cyclic mess
the New Refrain we must digest
"fear and hate: the terrorist
rejoice: the neoliberalist"

the New Gods bend religion, and science
disprove the proof, brook no defiance
that which will not be otherwise silenced
is met with force and cold hard violence

and while the restrictions increasingly grow
the all-pervasive steals the show
the one commandment, set in stone
"FEAR THAT WHICH YOU DO NOT KNOW"
