Compacted To Be Compromised - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We are approaching...
The last stop.
The last stop before logic as a topic,
Can be used.
If not...
Dupes to drop continue to abuse,
Those of minds devoted to be hoodwinked.
Hoodwinks done to purposely amuse,
The ones on the top,
Using dupes to fool.
And compacted to be compromised as tools,
Will be me and you.

Unknown to realize,
Our minds have been compromised to use.
And duped to fool on promises made.
Duped to fool on playing those games.
Duped to fool on claiming those gains...
When none of them came.
And duped to fool...
On transparencies nobody sees.
Duped to fool on beliefs deceived.
And awaiting to get dreams,
Like an addict on crack.
Promised by a pusher to get bags that stack.

Duped to fool...
On promises made.
Duped to fool...
On playing those games.
Duped to fool...
On claiming those gains.
When none of them came.

Compacted to be compromised.
And hoodwinked.
Compacted to be compromised.
And duped to fool.
Compacted to be compromised.
And hoodwinked.
Compacted to be compromised.
And duped to fool.
