Aristocratic Antiquity


Internalize insanity,
And blend in with the herd,
Claiming authority by mere age
In your corseted, choking world

Youth's a heinous crime
And so's a working mind
Because we aren't lemmings
To cannonball off a cliff

Archaic thoughts are cutting edge
And nothing else will do.
Can't you see? Something's wrong
When it's offensive to be you
