Domonion Of Darkness - Poem by alexander opicho

In the dominion of darkness
Where Ptolemy lived partially in veneration
There are apotheosifications and debasements;
Prejudice is apotheosified, Love is debased
Bigotry is upheld, Justice is ignobled
Loafers are ennobled, Soilers are ignobled
Hatred is fertilized, humane fibers are uprooted
Racism put on, Diversity switched off
Snobbery apotheosified to a virtue, Humility debased to a vice
Sycophancy promoted to glory, Professionalism demoted to rudeness
Generosity is chased out ruthlessly, avarice gets a chair ruthful
Sympathy for truth is thinned, as sadism enjoys plumage
Infamy takes over fame, morals pave way for immorality
Democracy pays kudos to timocracy, despots watching with a smile
As majority of numbers is shameless of tyranny of folly, shrinking minorities
Reason goes to limbo, like phoenix irrationality emerges from oblivion
Ethnicity takes over the nation, as class and ideology blur the hues
Family values go sham; as political immorality gets pedestals.
