A Darkness That's Been Turned On - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A darkness that's been turned on,
Can be switch off and to do it quick.
This darkness that's been turned on,
Can be turned off with a doing it.
A darkness that's been turned on,
For so long
Can be gone.

Too many minds are getting sick,
In darkness that has started.
Who suggested there's a benefit,
In darkness that has started.
Where's the switch,
To flip what's started.
Leaving people more psychotic.
Where's the switch,
To flip what's started.
Leaving people more neurotic.
Flip the switch!
Flip the switch!

A darkness that's been turned on,
Can be switch off and to do it quick.
This darkness that's been turned on,
Can be turned off with a doing it.
A darkness that's been turned on,
For so long
Can be gone.
Flip the switch!
Flip the switch!

Where's the switch,
To flip what's started.
Leaving people more psychotic.
Where's the switch,
To flip what's started.
Leaving people more neurotic.
Flip the switch!
Flip the switch!

Robotic and hypnotic in a darkness that has started!
Where's the switch,
To end neurotic people getting more psychotic.
Where's the switch,
In people's minds that have them blinded to these times.
Flip the switch,
To turn back on the light to help them find...
An end to darkness to be fed on to feed.

A darkness that's been turned on long,
Will leave people to grieve on.
And on,
Not to be gone.
A darkness that's been turned on long,
Will leave people to grieve on.
And on,
Not to be gone.
But prolonged.
