Evil Business - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Desperate are the demons losing control.
With a fixed foothold on which beliefs,
Are acceptable to achieve...
A release from their wicked,
And treacherous deceits.

Teasing those unconscious,
With fear if they should disobey...
No wings will be issued on judgement day.
And if they 'should' choose not to follow rules,
A hell to pay will come their way.

Desperate are the demons losing control.
With more awakening to get off their knees.
As they begin to see vivid hypocrisies.
And conflicts inflicted with a purpose to squeeze,
Independent thoughts from minds that perceive...
Only truth acknowledged can set one free.

Desperate are the demons losing control.
And desperate are those not knowing which way to go.
So accustomed to teachings that restrict them from life.
With a doing to listening to what they've been told,
Keeps the benefits flowing as long as they are sold...
That an inflighting over entitlements day and night,
At the delight of evil business to keep darkness away from light...
Will eventually satisfy those faithful to the myths.
And their dishonest origins.

'If they can not follow or obey our laws,
Locked them away!
Like the other two million we have found flawed.'

~No one with a thought to think,
Will escape from this business.
No one thinking can erase,
The evil of this business.

No one with a thought to think,
Will escape from this business.
No one thinking can erase,
The evil of this business.~

How evil is it?
This evil business?

~Well...
No one with a thought to think,
Will escape from this business.
No one thinking can erase,
The evil of this business.

No one with a thought to think,
Will escape from this business.
No one thinking can erase,
The evil of this business.~

How evil is it?
This evil business?
How evil is it?
This evil business?

~Well...
No one with a thought to think,
Will escape from this business.
No one thinking can erase,
The evil of this business.

No one with a thought to think,
Will escape from this business.
No one thinking can erase,
The evil of this business.~

    great exclamation L.S.P.
    I hope it's not true that the desperate won't lose control. (Report) Reply
