Before The Fall! The Chronicle.
Hidden deep inside behind a screen
is a monstrous tide spiteful and mean.
Touchy and sensitive and easily hurt,
and spurts out venom for all that it's worth.
It accuses and abuses and holds patients
like a sieve,
and for all in it's presence
makes life difficult to live.
It's the kind of monster
one can't easily hide,
suppressed as it is
down deep inside.
Longs to be free
from the prison within,
that open prison
where it's always unhinged.
Not forever under lock and key
but can break free from it's shackles
When it breaks through from that place inside
it's poison is deadly to those in it's sight.
It's appearance revolting
It's presence can't be denied.
It's ugly and angry and pushes
all else aside.
and whenever it's wrong,
it's always wright.
and the patients of many
have been tested and tried.
Oh how some have wept from
an untimely collide.
and still remain broken
when all tears have dried.
It's destructive and selfish
and exists worldwide.
It lives in us all
it's our kryptonite!
