Waiting out a three-day social media ban

While the newly installed compromise government sends rockets overhead

We ousted the extremist

No more need to worry yourself,

Go back to sleep, it’s just the usual deal

Rank death on the installment plan

You know you’re a degenerate, when they ban you for the truths you know

And the anarchist collective tells you, you’re breaking the decorum and the cringe

You make them feel, makes them feel you had better go

It’s the usual fate of a rational man

It’s a troll in the dungeon upsetting the clan

Predator drones can’t abide too much heat

They seek out the comfort, but explode when it’s meet

You need to go outside they tell you

And of course they’re right

But I told the truth yesterday

And the only one who wasn’t offended

Was my sense, and the bright

So I take the advice, cut off from discussion, lonely and upset by all the things they get to send as updates

down the pipe

All the everyday world

All the offense, the sick blight

The clean white room fluorescent where they tell you to sit and wait

for hope is a thing, [here’s the decree], you experience all by yourself

On the shores away from crowded shells

The bubbles in the foam of polluted waves

You sing it off elsewhere, knowing apart the fate of the world

In a lethal injection chamber, where you lie back and relax to watch the screens

Like a bloated dope

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –

That perches in the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –

And sore must be the storm –

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –

And on the strangest Sea –

Yet – never – in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of me.

While your patented madman scream of justice,

They porcelain make you frozen, glitched

A hummel figurine, crusted old and dusted, kitsch

While the room slowly fills with the gas they used as auschwitz
