Necromancer - Poem by P.R. Prosper

Every passing moment showcases man’s destined
To lead an existence obsessed with clandestine
Operations to subvert one another, and that’s when
Chaos ensues and subdues the path stepped in
So let’s win the question and play for the answer
As lemmings in settings of the necromancers

Imperial cleansers washing phantom threats
That spread out like cancers quashing random debts
And dance a ballet to find how much is true
They had a way to create what love is for two
With old mind games recycled and replayed anew
To frighten the public and silence the few

Much ado about nothing, but trudging along
Through logic and reason with one side of a tong
But a thong’s on the boob tube
Join in the song
And see all the bright lights
And the chrome blinging strong
The copter’s gone from Saigon

So switch up the station
Let the networks build on the alienation
As just one more tool of the daily invasion
And make comedies commonly
From war’s devastation
Levitation of prophets
No rest for a profit
One percent line their pockets
99 cannot stop it

But they sit and they watch it
With their mess o’ kids
Who keep their heads spinning more than exorcists
Asbestos is peeling off the walls as best it can
There is no health insurance to smile on dental plans
If there is no endurance to fly with Superman
Over a Metropolis of hostages
And their homeless piece of land
