Subtle Sedation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The more ridiculous their outrageous stage...
The more approved the behavior becomes.
This affect of dumb numbskullness is intact.
It is no act!
Brilliant the injection tested...
And their reactions prove this is fact!
Precious is the formula used.
And a subtle sedation...
Keeps them whacked!
Confused and controlled.
Further taxed by those amused.
Lunatics quick,
To display an absence of conscious thought!
Fused to instant whims they are!
They think of them of this creation.
Dim of wit...
And not a threat of a lesson kept,
That is taught!
