Treasure Island

Allan Gerard

~Project Monarch~

Here's a remote control to your destination
It's Mind Control, It's Mind Control
You'll open up your soul to the mode infection
It's Mind Control, it's Mass Hypnosis

Hypnotized by the lines that your about to follow
It's Mind Control, You'll lose control
Commit a Crime Today that You'll Forget Tomorrow
It's Mind Control, You've lost control

Your minds a living sponge into which the images are swallowed
When it moves beneath your skin you know your heart is soon to follow
As you receive the frequencies of another's imagination
Your feelings swayed by the words relayed, a revelation

In a zombified trance the images dance within your mind
No more a look or glance but bound by sound & sights
No longer the crystal ball by the medium that sees it
The T.V tells a vision for the future you'll believe in

The sensations that are felt by the Fear that you fed it
In the shadows you've crept but your soon to Regret it
The lessons learned in the book that you've closed
Removes the clothes from your Lust, done as your told

You're a slave within your sin within your skin bound to slaughter
Depraved and wearing thin, right before yours sons & daughters
Your heart beats to the tick tock of the clock that is ticking
While death waits for the time bomb Shame wired while sleeping

Mind Control, It's Mind Control
It's Mind Control, Manipulation
Mind Control, It's Mind Control
Subliminal, It's My Control...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The Monarch Mind Control designation was originally applied by the US Department of Defense to a sub-program under the CIA's MK-Ultra Program. However, the techniques employed in the Monarch programming system extend back further under various names, such as the Nazi marionette programming.

The program engaged in many illegal activities; in particular it used unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, which led to controversy regarding its legitimacy. MKUltra used numerous methodologies to manipulate people's mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture

The CIA and National Security Council firmly established, the first in a series of covert brain-washing programs that were initiated by the Navy in the fall of 1947. Project CHATTER was developed in response to the Soviet's 'successes' through the use of 'truth drugs.' This rationale, however was simply a cover story if the program were to be exposed. The research focused on the identification and testing of such drugs for use in interrogations and the recruitment of agents. The project was officially terminated in 1953.

The CIA decided to expand their efforts in the area of behavior modification, with the advent of Project BLUEBIRD, approved by director Allen Dulles in 1950. Its objectives were to; discover a means of conditioning personnel to prevent unauthorized extraction of information from them by known means, investigate the possibility of control of an individual by application of special interrogation techniques, investigate memory enhancement and establish defensive means for preventing hostile control of agency personnel. In August 1951, Project BLUE BIRD was renamed Project ARTICHOKE, which evaluated offensive uses of interrogation techniques, including hypnosis and drugs The program ceased in 1956. Three years prior to the halt of Project ARTICHOKE, Project MKULTRA came into existence on April 13,1953 along the lines proposed by Richard Helms, Deputy Director of Central Intelligence (DDCI) with the rationale of establishing a 'special funding mechanism of extreme sensitivity.'

The hypothetical etymology of 'MK' may possibly stand for 'Mind Kontrolle.' The obvious translation of the German word 'Kontrolle' into English is 'control.' A host of German doctors, procured from the post war Nazi talent pool, were an invaluable asset toward the development of MKULTRA. The correlation between the concentration camp experiments and the numerous sub-projects of MKULTRA are clearly evident. The various avenues used to control human behavior under MKULTRA included radiation, electroshock, psychology, psychiatry, sociology, anthropology, graphology, harassment substances and paramilitary devices and materials 'LSD' being the most widely dispensed 'material'. A special procedure, designated MKDELTA, was established to govern the use of MKULTRA abroad. MKULTRA/DELTA materials were used for harassment, discrediting or disabling purposes.

Of the 149 subprojects under the umbrella of MKULTRA having been identified, Project MONARCH, officially begun by the U.S. Army in the early 1960's (although unofficially implemented much earlier) appears to be the most prominent and is still classified as TOP SECRET for 'National Security' reasons. MONARCH may have come from MKSEARCH subprojects, such as operation SPELLBINDER, which was set up to create 'sleeper'' assassins (i e. 'Manchurian candidates') who could be activated upon receiving a key word or phrase while in a post-hypnotic trance.

    This poem is scary...good! The repetition of It's mind control in this really makes more bold and feel able. Especially when you tell me (the reader) that I'm losing control. It makes it me think 'what if this was real? ' which makes it scary. Your author's note giving details showing that it not just feels real it IS sent chills up my spine. Very terrifyingly good! (I'm glad I don't watch much T.V! Lol.)

    Thanx for sharing the details....indeed the atrocities these people subject the common people is awful..and too in the name of defence strategy.............'You're a slave within your sin' liked that as its very very true....manipulation is the absolutely correct word for all that goes on in our hearts through the alluring justification of grey cells.....

    It feels like the lyrics of a heavy metal or punk song, NOT A BAD THING! , Id say they were really good lyrics, though a little heavy handed it definitely gets the message home, I especially like these line
    As you receive the frequencies of another's imagination
    Your feelings swayed by the words relayed, a revelation

    Not to mention these ones

    No longer the crystal ball by the medium that sees it
    The T.V tells a vision for the future you'll believe in

    Unfortunately I don't think we need government project to control us, I think we allow it to happen to ourselves, even if we all rose up and fought the corrupt system, you'd still have idiots whose first idea would be to steal the home entertainment systems at Future shop. Still awesome stuff, great use of language as always, dense, but well articulate. (Report) Reply

    Ha! Funny you say that cause it was written to some artsy metalesque guitar riffs. It actually is lyrics that I tried to format it into a more poetical style.

    Your poem is an intense, compelling, inescapable experience of slow-motion terror as the truth of our entanglements with media/gov't control steadily unfolds. Your prose account is even more disturbing because it doesn't have of the artistic qualities that make even a poem about control satisfying. the prose is just the blunt truth dropped in our laps - BOY, YOU GONNA CARRY THAT WEIGHT A LONG LONG TIME!

    Spot on Allan. A well researched piece. It is amazing how gullible many people can be. Add a desire to be rich and famous into the mix and voila the ego has landed. More and more people are waking up to the bs that surrounds them every day.
    Well done mate. A good job well done. (Report) Reply

    this poem just told me to take out the trash and put a new liner in the trash can.
    you're good.

    seriously though, nice write- the media is the devil and so is the government.

    Slaves of the Media,
    We all are,
    We travel with Expedia
    To a manipulated star.

    This poem, a Great and Welcomed exposure of our fractured minds and lives.
