Truth is gone forever
intimidation and threats are the new norms.

Corporations are squeezed and boycotted
mainstream media fronted as propaganda channels.

I see the end from the beginning
schools converted to re-orientation camps.
Families silenced for good
those who dare to speak, shamed.

I write this with tears
for the future I have seen, is empty.
Men programmed like robots
written like firmware and scheduled for updates.

Who will bear the cross for us?
who will restore humanity?
who will stand against the mob?
who will rescue us?
