“Expensive wines with a hook of denial.”
An attempt to make a dying nation
feel better about the grave
expensive wines with a hook of denial,
all this to hide the slow labored breath
of an empires death.
Illusions sold by the powers that be
making other nations believe a people are ungovernable
yet failing to show
crafty helter skelter
disconnecting a people from reality gaining control of the masses
hear what isn’t being said
see what isn’t there
believe what isn’t happening.
All of these escapism
poverty is still poverty
death is still death
unemployment still unemployment
politics are still politics.
