Layers

Once to identify the players,
Over time participating...
In creating false beliefs.
And their doing of this,
Is treated...
As comedic relief.
Layers of it,
Begin to be accepted.
No one objects but accepts.
And a way of life,
Begins disrespected to expect.
Rules and laws to follow,
People publicly reject.
Until...
Those elected to protect,
A society known...
To celebrate freedoms.
Entitlements.
And also fiction that deceives,
What reality and truth is...
Lived to enhance greatness.
This...
Becomes,
A reason to encourage...
Destruction.
Insurrection.
And the end of a democracy.
By those blinded by diversity.
With a wish to have believed,
Their ungrateful lives...
To feed selfishly upon greed.
Had been an independent,
Activity.
Without diversity involved.

'Why is this happening to US?
We must,
Get to the bottom of this.
Until we find the answers.'

'Which answers?
Answers you will accept?
Or answers you can easily,
Explain away with excuses? '

'Any and all answers,
That will begin to solve...
Our ongoing problems.'

'Is that an neccesity?
Or a wish to have televised,
An intellectual debate...
Between those picked,
To represent various races.
Done to add another layer...
Over more ignorance to know,
Who fears the truth.
To reveal,
A covering of who smothers...
With druthers to do it done.'

'These procedures require,
Investigative formalities.
And done to allow the culprits,
An opportunity to express...
While dressed impressively,
Their reason and purpose...
To destroy our quality of life.
Without a clue or hint,
That may detect them to be...
The bigots and racists,
They are! '

'Well...
Okay!
At least explaining this,
Intellectually.
Does provide,
A clearer understanding...
As to why,
They ask forgiveness.
With promises not to do,
More evil again.'

'You notice...
All of their hands are placed,
On Bibles? Right? '

'Yes, I do.
To also notice them swearing! '

'We are not here,
To discuss details.
Just the image to see it given! '
