Draconian Designs…a Fascist Fracas - Poem by saadat tahir

Stifle,
Smother a yawn.
Garrote,
A walk in the lawn
Smother the curiosity.
Conceal and suppress.
Tie the hock.
Near the flank.
Shorten the leash.
To the shank.
Dampen, muffle.
The lead pup eager.
Put on provision meager.
Keep in the shade.
Or better; call up the blade.
Hush up, withhold.
Fence, ignore.
Throttle, bury, sink.
Suppress, reserve.
Concealment! ... Asphyxiate, drown?
Whose be that clown?
Silence is golden!
Restrain thy self!
Extinguish the flame.
Douse; snuff the blaze.
Faith doth suppress silence.
Tread not that pestilence.
Without faith you will climb.
Swathes sublime.
Les Miserables, kindle not the flame!
The globe flourishes…be tame!

    And yet, we hold the flame kindled, refusing to give in. Refusing to be tamed!
    Outstanding! 10+++
