Fallacies Of The Conscious Mind - Poem by Todd Byrne

Allude to this ambiguity of life.
Establish reason has its odds and ends,
Maybe hint of the fine line it contends.
Suggest contending is part of the strife.

Take it up a notch.

Hint that society is leaning to fire.
Suggest that the reasons could be greed,
State some figures and mention those in need.
Admit the needy know ‘Merica’s a liar.

Take it up a notch.

Lodge a complaint that cruelty exists.
Say PETA and ONE is surface being skimmed.
Create a shock and note who we condemned,
The blank minds ignore and settle in the mist.

Take it up a notch.

Conditioned, so blind, content to blame.
Never about love or trust, crazed and insane,
Limit the signs, admit we just complain.
Lock it up, summarize, all that’s left is shame.

Take it up a notch.

And count up all these notches.
Add about a million more,
But ignore the fact, the thoughts a bore.
It’s just a spot to the growing blotches.
